Different Dog Bite Wounds and Infectionsdog aggressively running

Dog bites can inflict different types of wounds like cuts and lacerations, abrasions, crushing wounds, punctures and fractured bones. Some can be minor injuries and others can be major injuries

These dog bite wounds can often result in disfiguring scars, and sometimes, our San Diego dog bite lawyer team has seen clients suffer from a dog bite infection. The central target area for the face includes the lips, nose, and cheeks.

Dog bites are becoming more common because of the increase in dog ownership and interaction of people and dogs. Many owners are ignorant of the proper care and training of dogs. The vast majority of bites are by pet dogs and happen when people are engaged in social behavior in appropriate places or meeting places.

Over 80% of dog bites occur close to the dog's home or the home of the bitten person. Around 77% of injuries are by friendly dogs known to the bitten person. It is impossible to predict what might provoke a friendly dog to bite.

Remember, dogs are animals and they sometimes react on instinct. They may be in pain, become panic-stricken, feel threatened, or any number of factors.

Children aged 5 or younger are more likely to provoke animals. A dog should never be left unattended with small children. Be extremely careful with dogs and children!
