Dogs are such a ubiquitous part of our society that most people are able to forget the danger a dog can pose. Any dog can bite. Larger dogs can cause serious, even fatal injuries.
When Children Are Involved in a Dog Attack
When children are the victim of a dog attack, the level of injury is magnified due to their smaller size and their diminished ability to fight off a dog compared with an adult.
Another aspect to consider when a child is attacked by a dog is the fact that often dog bites create scarring. Scarring can have a serious psychological impact on a child. This is especially true when the scarring is focused on exposed parts of the body.
In addition to the physical effects of the attack, there may be lasting emotional effects. Being attacked by a dog, especially for a child, can be a highly traumatic event. Living with the impact of that trauma may be difficult.
