Short-Term Injuries Caused by Dog Attacks

There are numerous physical injuries that can occur when an individual is bitten by a dog. The severity of the injuries depends on the type of attack, the breed and size of the dog, and the age and health of the victim. While children and elderly people are more susceptible to catastrophic injuries resulting from a dog bite due to fragile skin and brittle bones, anyone can suffer minor to severe injuries when attacked by a dog.

Common short-term injuries that result from a dog attack include:

  • Scratches

  • Lacerations

  • Dislocations

  • Facial injuries

  • Puncture wounds

  • Broken bones

  • Bruising

Long-Term Effects of a Dog Attack

Although many dog bite victims experience a quick recovery from their injuries, some people are not so fortunate. Several individuals who have been attacked by a dog suffer from serious, long-term complications that have a lasting impact on their lives.

A dog bite can lead to several long-term effects, including:

  • Infection

  • Scarring and disfigurement

  • Cynophobia (fear of dogs)

  • Deep wounds resulting in disability

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

California Dog Bite Laws

California is a strict liability state. This means when a dog attacks someone in a public place or a private place that the victim was lawfully within, the owner is liable for the victim’s damages. The dog owner is responsible regardless of whether they knew of the dog’s violent tendencies.

According to California law Section 3342, a person is lawfully on private property when:

  • He was on the property to fulfill a duty imposed on him by state laws or U.S. postal regulations

  • He was on the property by express or implied invitation of the owner
