Dog Bite Attacks and Injuries

By Meyerkord & Meyerkord  Feb. 4, 2011 10:36p

One of the scariest and potentially most physically and emotionally damaging types of injuries you can receive occurs from a dog bite attack. Dog bites are particularly dangerous because not only is the canine jaw designed to rip and tear flesh, if a dog has a disease such as rabies you could be exposed and could get sick and die from the injury. These attacks unfortunately occur most often upon children who either appear weak to a dog, or who unintentionally provoke the dog by scaring it or attempting to play with it in a way it believes is threatening. If you or your child has been injured in a dog bite attack, contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney as soon as you can in order to begin building a case to fight for compensation from the dog's owner.

For children especially, dog bite attacks are extremely dangerous. These can result not only in violent damage to the skin, muscles and face, but also can cause blindness if the eyes are damaged, loss of motion or control if a person suffers nerve damage, and even paralysis if the victim is knocked over and suffers a brain injury or spinal cord injury as well the other injuries. In order to improve your case, take pictures of your injuries, torn clothing, the dog, and where the attack occurred. In addition to other techniques you can ensure that you have the best chance of winning your case and obtaining monetary compensation.
