Scarring & Disfigurement
Long Beach Dog Bite Lawyer
Unfortunately, it is a fact that scarring and disfigurement are often the result of dog bite attacks. When attacking an individual, dogs will often bite deep and then shake their heads in an attempt to tear the flesh. This can lead to nerve and muscle damage, as well as bone breakage. If there is an avulsion (flesh being partially separated from the body), it can leave the victim with lost skin or body parts, such as an ear or the nose. Such injuries often result in an unsightly physical appearance, causing extreme mental and emotional anguish in the victim.
Scarring and disfigurement can be repaired or minimized by a competent plastic or reconstructive surgeon, but this is often very costly, and most health insurers will not cover such procedures due to them being considered cosmetic. In cases like these, it is often in the victim's best interest to contact a Long Beach dog bite lawyer, who can assist them in seeking injury compensation from those at fault so that they can cover the costs of their injury treatment and resume living a normal and happy life.
