A Single Arizona Dog Bite is All It Takes to Cause Serious Injury

In a society that loves its canines, it is hard to avoid an encounter with a dog. Most dogs are docile and pose little threat to people. Yet, there are some dogs that are more aggressive than the average and these are the canines that often cause the most serious damage.

While a mauling can cause serious and painful dog bite injuries, so can one single bite. In rare cases, one bite can lead to a potentially deadly infection. However, that is not the only risk that results from a dog bite. Below are some of the most common, and serious dog bite injuries:

  • Physical Scarring: Dog bite injuries often occur on the face, arms, and legs. These painful wounds can lead to permanent scarring. Sometimes, reconstructive surgery is required to repair the scars, which can be costly.
  • Emotional Scarring: The emotional repercussions of a dog attack can be just as devastating as the physical damage. A canine attack can spur a lifetime fear of dogs. Children often suffer the worst emotional trauma, causing them to be too afraid to even go outside and play.
  • Nerve Damage: Dogs have powerful jaws and sharp teeth – a combination that can lead to puncture wounds. These types of injuries are known to cause nerve damage. Once a nerve has been damaged, sensation may be lost or there may be pain or numbness in the affected area.
