Dog bites can be extremely traumatic and can lead to debilitating injuries. The danger is especially high when dogs attack in a pack. An individual is often overpowered and unable to escape the situation. Additionally, dogs can carry rabies or other infectious diseases and their bites can penetrate through the skin and tear ligaments. These injuries can require corrective surgery and can lead to scarring, pain and suffering, and a constant reminder of a horrific event.
