Few people consistently expect to be or fear being attacked by a dog, but sadly, this happens to thousands of people annually across the United States. While there are instances in which a person can provoke a dog, making them responsible for the ensuing repercussions, far too often the victim is an innocent passerby who suffers consequences due to a negligent dog owner. Unfortunately, when this happens, victims can sustain a range of serious injuries.

5 Common Dog Bite Injuries
Dog attack injuries vary, in both their nature and their severity. However, some rather common serious dog bite injuries include:
- Laceration / Blood Loss
- Bruising / Contusions
- Broken Bones / Fractures
- Infection / Illness
Any one of these injuries could pose serious health threats to someone who is attacked by a dog. Sadly, many of them could simply be prevented if dog owners took more responsibility for the behavior of their pets.
