4 Signs That You Need Treatment for a Dog Bite

Dog bites occur regularly in the United States. In fact, dog bites affect over 4.5 million people every year, making the incident more common than many people realize. Dogs can attack for a variety of reasons, but most attacks occur because the breed is naturally aggressive or the dog becomes frightened for some reason. Whatever the cause of a dog bite, the injury can be serious and costly to treat.

If you or someone you know has been bitten by a dog and may need medical treatment, you may be wondering how to pay for such treatment. However, if you have been attacked by another person’s dog, you could be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for the costs of your treatment and recovery. Contact an experienced Denver dog bite lawyer of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770 to discuss how we can help you.

Reasons for Medical Treatment After a Dog Bite

Many people believe that dog bites are not serious injuries and can be left untreated. However, some dog bites can need serious treatments in order to fully heal. If you have been bitten by a dog, it’s important to know when you need to seek medical treatment. Generally, you should seek treatment if the following occur:

  1. Broken bones / fractures
  2. Excessive swelling
  3. Numbness in the area of the bite
  4. Infection

Additionally, if you are not completely sure that the animal has had a proper rabies vaccination, it is imperative to talk to your doctor about a possible rabies infection.
