Dog Bite Injuries

When a dog bites someone it's either because they feel threatened or because they are a poorly trained animal, and these bites often leave serious injuries. A dog bite should immediately be seen to by a medical professional to ensure that you aren't at risk of infection or disease. Here are several types of injuries that can arise from a dog bite:

  • Puncture Wounds – Dogs, by nature, have sharp canines designed for puncturing skin. When a dog bites, they use these teeth to cause wounds that can cause serious bleeding if not seen to immediately.
  • Broken Bones – Larger breeds of dogs have extremely strong jaws, and when they bite, they can do a tremendous amount of damage. Larger breeds are also known to have the ability to break bones when they bite.
  • Infections – Dogs will eat just about anything, and that includes trash, food found on the floor or outside, and food that could be several days old. Their mouths are full of bacteria that can cause infections when the dog bites someone.
  • Diseases – In rare cases, a dog can transmit rabies and other diseases to a human when they bite. This is why it's always critically important to see a doctor after any dog bite.

If you've been bitten by a dog in Hartford, or Hartford County Connecticut, it is important to your health and your welfare that you immediately speak with a Dog Bite Lawyer in Hartfpord. We can help you get the care you need and deserve for your injuries.
