The Violence and Damages of a Dog Bite

The trauma of an animal attack is primal, and the suffering caused as a result can be physical, financial and emotional. Particularly in the all too common occurrence of the attack or maiming of children, the injuries suffered can include:

  • Scarring
  • Lacerations
  • Broken Bones
  • Nerve Damage
  • Disfigurement

In some tragic cases, an animal attack can even lead to a wrongful death case.

These kinds of attacks are particularly common among historically dangerous dog breeds such as the: Pit Bull, Rottweiler, German Shepherd and Doberman Pincher. These large dogs have strong bites and massive frames that make them particularly dangerous.
