The typical injuries of a dog attack are going to be where the bites occurred; there could be muscle damage and muscle loss, as well as scarring and bruising. Those are your typical injuries. In addition to the typical injuries, there are other injuries that are common. There could be severe scarring which could require plastic surgery or further treatment in the future. This is particularly true if someone has been attacked and they have facial injuries. Not only is there going to be the bite and the muscle injury and damage, but there’s going to be scarring. That type of scarring will probably require some type of plastic surgery and facial repair.
The thing that you need to know is that when there has been an attack in Ventura, is that the injuries can be very significant because not only do we have the injuries and the scarring that we’ve been talking about, but there can be very significant psychological injuries, especially if it’s a child. That child may never get over this trauma. They may be afraid of dogs for the rest of their life and it can affect them in many ways. There are multifaceted levels of injuries that can be involved in a dog bite or animal attack.
The only way that you are going to fully know what all of the injuries and damages are is to talk to an attorney who has the skill and experience of dealing with these dog bites on a regular basis.
