Dogs are among the most popular pets in the entire world, and can be found in millions of households across the globe. However, when allowed to run free or when owners fail to properly train or socialize these animals, a dog can bite an individual resulting in serious consequences. Dog bites and attacks are rarely considered trivial, as even the most minor of bites can lead to severe injuries.
Common dog bite injuries sustained by victims are infections, tissue loss, cuts and lacerations, puncture wounds, broken bones, scarring, disfigurement, nerve damage, and muscle damage. In other extreme cases, dog bites result in death.
When a dog bites a victim’s leg or arm, the victim may sustain severe muscle damage, affecting the victim’s ability to move and walk. The victim may suffer from chronic pain and immobility, and may require years of medical treatment. When situations such as these arise, a dog bite victim with muscle damage is not only affected physically, but also emotionally and financially.
