About Dog Bite Injuries

The immediate impact of a dog bite injury may include emotional pain as well as a gaping wound. After a dog breaks the skin, the risk of infection is a serious concern. Emergency medical care will normally involve antibiotics, stitches and psychological care.

Plastic surgery may be necessary to mitigate scarring in the short term, and possibly again months or years later. A child who has been bitten may require facial reconstruction surgery upon reaching later stages of maturation.

Psychological counseling may also be critical. Social stigma can be especially difficult in the meantime, possibly affecting a child’s personality development. Someone whose career progression is impacted by scarring may need rehabilitative guidance as well as compensation to account for lost income.
