Devastating Effects of Dog Bite Injuries
A canine attack injury is more than a physically painful event. It often leaves a victim with psychological trauma (often resulting in lingering post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD), scars, and disfigurement.
A dog bite injury requires prompt, attentive medical treatment, including:
- Treatment of the wound to stop bleeding, prevent infection and promote healing
- Evaluation by plastic surgeons as needed, to determine whether and when plastic surgery may be necessary
- Possible skin grafts or other reparative surgical treatments
Psychological trauma may leave a person fearful and jittery. This may be especially true for children who experienced terror at the time of an attack by a dog.
Scarring and disfigurement are very common outcomes of dog bites. The impact will vary according to where the bite occurred on the body. A disfigured face leaves many a dog bite victim feeling awkward and inhibited in social settings. Many experts report that children and young women experience the greatest losses triggered by disfigurement.
What to Do After a Dog Bite Incident
If you have been the victim of a dog bite:
- Seek immediate medical attention
- Report the incident to the local animal control authority
- Report the incident to the local police department
