Face Injuries From a Dog Bite

Face injuries can be some of the most traumatic dog bite injuries. Unfortunately, they're also some of the most common. If your face was anywhere near a dog when it attacked you, chances are you suffered face injuries. You may have needed stitches or surgery, and you may have scars.

For many people with face injuries from a dog bite, the pain isn't just physical – it's emotional as well. Looking in the mirror may be a struggle, because it may be a reminder of the attack. You may feel self-conscious, and your scars could have changed the way you approach life.

It's important to know you may have a case and deserve compensation for your injuries. At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we wish we could erase the dog attack. But, we can do the next best thing – work to get you the compensation you need to pay your bills, have the surgeries you need, make up for missed work time, and move on with your life.

Dog Attacks Can Cause Face Injuries

Every dog attack is different, because every situation leading to the dog attack is unique. Your face injuries or disfigurement could include:

  • Fractured skull
  • Fractured jaw bone
  • Broken cheek bone
  • Broken bones around your mouth
  • Broken nose
  • Broken bones around your eyes
  • Cuts, lacerations, and other wounds to your face
  • Eye injuries
  • Scars
  • And more

Remember, a dog doesn't necessarily have to bite to cause serious injuries. You may have been running from a dog that tried to attack you, and fell on concrete. You might have dashed into the street, not thinking because a dog was chasing you, and a car may have hit you.
