Common Dog Bite Injuries

A nip might cause a small puncture, and you might feel like little harm was done. But dog attacks also can be severe and deadly. Large, strong dog breeds can break bones and cause disfiguring injuries. In addition, any size dog can cause an infection, which can be harmful if not properly treated. The most recent data available from the CDC stated about 799,700 people in the U.S. required medical care for dog bites, with the highest injury rate among children.

Puncture & Soft Tissue Injuries

Dog teeth can cause puncture wounds and lacerations. A dog bite can also cause harm to the soft tissue, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and more.

Broken Bones

Small dog breeds are unlikely to fracture a bone. But large dogs have considerable jaw strength. As a result, an attack can lead to one or more bone fractures that require medical attention. Rabies

Rabies

Rabies is a rare but serious risk. Dogs get the rabies vaccine, but according to the CDC, dogs account for about 1% of all rabid animals each year.

Tetanus

Tetanus, also known as lockjaw, is a severe bacterial infection. The risk of tetanus from a dog bite is small because of the tetanus vaccine. The CDC reported there are about 30 cases of tetanus in the U.S. each year.

Pasteurella

Most Pasteurella infections are the result of cat or dog bites or scratches. This bacterium can be found in about half of dog bite injuries, and up to 18% become infected. Always clean a dog bite wound well and see a doctor to reduce the risk of infection.

PTSD

Being attacked by a dog can cause significant psychological trauma. Depending on the severity and wounds, you might need counseling or be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Studies have linked PTSD in children and dog bites.

What Makes KNR Special?

Our Cincinnati Dog Bite Lawyers Are Here For You

We Investigate the Accident

We investigate who was in control of the dog at the time and gather evidence about what happened. For example, we might pursue compensation from the dog owner and another party, such as a hired dog walker or kennel.

We Negotiate On Your Behalf

Once we identify the responsible people or businesses, we find out whether they have insurance coverage. The best way to recover compensation might be through filing an insurance claim. For example, businesses that work with animals usually have insurance. An owner’s homeowners’ or renter’s insurance policy also may cover dog bite injuries.

We Prove Your Injuries

We make sure you receive appropriate medical care and have everything you need to recover. We also work with you, your doctors, and, if necessary, medical experts to gather evidence of your injuries. To secure the maximum compensation possible, we have to prove the type and severity of your injuries.

We Fight For Compensation

If there’s no insurance coverage or the insurer denies your claim, we might recommend filing a lawsuit. Going to court doesn’t have to be intimidating. We’ll appear in court on your behalf and guide you through the phases of litigation. Most personal injury claims settle, but we aren’t afraid to fight for your compensation at trial.

At KNR, we ask, ‘what can we do?’ so you move on with more.

Our Attorneys Will:

  • Answer your questions and concerns
  • Keep you updated during all stages of the process
  • Obtain medical and financial records about the extent of your losses
  • Identify the responsible party
  • Determine the fair and full value of your dog bite case
