What We Know About California Dog Bite Injuries

Dog attacks are more prevalent and serious than a lot of people realize.  It has been estimated that about 800,000 bites occur each year in the United States that are bad enough to require medical treatment.  The majority of those victims are children who often sustain these bite injuries on their faces.

Here are some other things we know about dog bites:

  • A dog will most frequently target the victim’s face
  • Children are the ones who generally suffer the most severe injuries
  • Spring appears to bring the highest number of dog attacks
  • Severely injured dog bite victims typically spend about 4 days in the hospital

We also know that California dog bites result in cuts and lacerations, abrasions, broken bones, punctures and crushing injuries.  These injuries can lead to further complications, such as infection, scarring and disfigurement.
