Dogs are man’s best friend – but people should never forget that they are also animals. Injuries caused by dogs and other animals can result in long-term consequences. For example, there is often scarring which effects the victim’s outward appearance and self-image. There is also the possibility of muscle damage, nerve impairment and infection, requiring intensive long term treatment.
Animal bites can often cause psychological damage too; survivors of animal bites can suffer emotional scars such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or simply an increased fear around similar animals. Across the United States almost 5 million people a year are bitten by dogs, and the average hospital stay for a dog bite injury is almost four days.
