Valley Glen dog bite injury victims can suffer terrible injuries consisting of punctures and lacerations, nerve damage, fractures, infection, permanent scarring and severe emotional distress. Care and treatment is often provided by medical doctors, plastic surgeons, neurologists, psychologists and pain management doctors. Occasionally orthopedic doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors may be needed, especially when a dog attack causing the dog bite victim to be knocked down, suffering various other injuries from muscle strains, sprains and ligament tears (e.g., ACL tear in the knee). Sometimes the injuries may even cause fatalities, resulting in wrongful death claims.
Dog owners need to properly train and restrain their animals in order to keep their pets, themselves, and the general population safe. Common factors contributing to dog bite incidents and dog attacks include the following:
- Unleashed dogs
- Approaching a strange dog without permission
- Poorly/untrained dogs
It is key to keep distance between yourself and a strange dog. Many dogs are beloved family pets, who may have gotten out of the house or yard by accident, and are perfectly friendly. However, some dogs can be aggressive, frightened, injured or ill, and therefore be prone to biting. It is wise not to touch a strange dog. Calling local Animal Control or luring the dog into an enclosed, safe area are much safer options than attempting to handle any strange animal. There is always a possibility that even the gentlest, most well-behaved dog will snap, due to fear, pain or stress. By keeping a safe distance, you keep yourself and the dog safe, as dogs deemed dangerous can be put down, and you may suffer terrible injuries from being bitten.Valley Glen Dog Bite Incident Injury Information
