The impact of dog attack

Posted on August 21, 2015 1:27 pm under Animal attack

Dog attacks can lead to tragic death. In fact, in 2014, 42 deaths have been recorded across the country to be associated with dog attacks. Of all the fatalities, 52% were adults 20 years and older while 48% were children 13 years and below. Pit bulls and rottweilers are considered the two most dangerous dog breeds, having been responsible for the 74% of the total dog bite fatalities last year.

People who survived a dog attack are also faced with repercussions brought about by this traumatic incident. These may include:

  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Compromised motion because of physical injury
  • Lost income
  • Unexpected medical costs
  • Fear of dogs
  • Anxiety, panic attacks
  • In some instances, post traumatic stress disorder
