Physical Dangers of Dog Bites
Medical Conditions Caused by Dog Bites
Even if you believe your injury is minor, you should seek medical attention immediately after being bitten by a dog.
In some cases, a dog bite can cause serious medical conditions such as:
- Staph infections
- And rabies
Symptoms for these conditions are not always immediately noticeable, so don't wait to until symptoms surface to visit a doctor. This may only result in longer, more intensive treatment and a greater chance of serious illness. Even small cuts and abrasions from a dog attack can be easily infected, so get medical help immediately if you have been bitten.
After you have seen a doctor, find out how a Hartford personal injury attorney can help you build a case against the owner and win the compensation you need to pay for your treatment.
Without legal help, you may end up paying for your injuries yourself, and treatments for dog bite wounds and infections are anything but cheap. Don't get stuck in this situation! Find a lawyer in your area who can fight for you.
