The Anatomy of A Dog Bite

By Remer & Georges-Pierre  Nov. 2, 2010 2:25p

Domesticated dogs can be, for the most part, friendly, loving and docile creatures. Even though they are domesticated however, dogs may still have the temperament or instinctual reflexes of their wolf ancestors and in certain situations can be driven to do what they believe is protecting themselves, their property or their owners.

Many dog attacks are the result of fear triggering the natural survival instincts of a dog, even when there is no just cause for fear. Animal abuse, attack training, negligence and other causes can make a dog more likely to attack any individual who it perceives as a threat, no matter the circumstances. In these cases it is important to have the legal expertise of a Miami dog attack attorney who can guide a victim on how to proceed following a dog attack.

In certain cases the canine jaw can exert more than 500 psi (pounds per square inch). This type of force can easily shred a victim's skin, tear muscle and can fracture or break bones. Any tiny action can send an aggressive or fearful dog into a self-defense or territorial state including simple actions such as appearing to intervene between the dog and its food, intervening in a dog fight, having threatening body language or what the specific do perceives to be threatening and many other simple, inadvertent actions. Other reactions such as dominance, predatory instincts and especially pain or sickness can also cause a dog to attack a human, even without provocation.
