Dog bites can cause serious personal injuries, infections, disfigurement, permanent scarring, emotional trauma and death.
In the thirteen year period of 2005 through 2017, Dogbites.org reported that canines killed 433 Americans. Many more suffer serious personal injuries or property damage. It is the responsibility of a dog owner to ensure their dog does not hurt or injure anyone.
Victims of severe dog attacks who suffer these significant injuries, infections, disfigurement and scarring will need specialized medical care, and often reconstructive surgery is required to diminish the appearance of scars. These medical procedures can be painful, costly and take years to complete.
