Dog bite injuries range from small puncture wounds to serious scars and nerve injuries. Now that Spring has come and weather is warming, the number of dog bites and attacks will start to increase in Michigan. The reasons are simple. More people are outside enjoying the outdoors and more dog owners are letting their dogs outside and taking them to parks. This leads to more incidents of dog bite attacks.
We recently added several articles to our website Library on the common types of dog bite injuries. These include infections, like Rabies, scars that require Plastic Surgery, and Nerve Injuries. In the most vicious dog bite attacks, the victim might have all of these types of injuries. The severity of these injuries usually serves as the basis for determining the value of a dog bite settlement.
