Bodily & Emotional Injuries from Dog Bites

Los Angeles Dog Attack Injury Lawyer

There are numerous bodily and emotional injuries that may result from a dog bite. Because these injuries may require hospitalization and continued treatment, and may have significant impact on the victim's enjoyment of life, you may wish to consider involving an attorney to assist you in recovering the full financial compensation you deserve. A dog bite attorney at our Los Angeles law firm can meet with you to talk about your options and your legal rights.

Specific injuries that a victim may sustain will vary greatly depending on the size and weight of the dog, the nature of the attack, the height and weight of the victim, the clothing the victim was wearing, the location of the attack, and more. However, there are certain bodily injuries that are often associated with dog bites, and these include:

  • Lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Abrasions
  • Loss of skin, muscle or cartilage
  • "Crush" injuries from the force of the bite itself
  • Severe bruising
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Sprains
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • The possibility of infection, such as rabies or cellulitis

Emotional Trauma and Dog Bites

The emotional repercussions of a dog bite may range from person to person. The memory and pain associated with the attack itself may be traumatizing, in addition to having to live with any scars or disfiguring injuries that resulted from the attack. Post traumatic stress disorder may also impact the victim. Some people who have sustained dog bites will also retain a fear of dogs and the outdoors, possibly for years or for life.

Make sure your bodily and emotional injuries are fully compensated for your dog bite claim. Contact a Los Angeles dog bite injury lawyer at Pacific Attorney Group today to learn more about how we can help you.
