Dog bites can result in far more painful and long-lasting injury than some people might expect. Even a single bite by a dog can result in serious muscle and tissue damage, or serious infections during the recovery process. It can cause long-term nerve damage to the hands that make working difficult, sometimes enough to require a permanent change in career. A more aggressive attack can mean even more serious damage to the body, which may require extensive medical treatments and physical therapy.
The danger of dog bites doesn’t end with the physical damage, however. A violent attack can cause long-lasting psychological problems that may make it difficult to leave the house, to work properly or to manage outdoor interactions that may constantly involve unwanted contact with dogs. Long-term mental health care may be necessary to fully recover from the trauma of a dog bite attack.
