Nerve Damage From Dog Bite – Lawsuit Information

Every year, hundreds of thousands of individuals suffer dog bites and animal attacks in the United States. One of the most common, and in many cases, overlooked, injuries to befall victims of dog bites is nerve damage. Nerve injures during dog bites and attacks can be caused by deep lacerations, puncture wounds, contusions, and compression of the tissue. Specific symptoms of nerve damage include the following:

  • General sensation of burning and tingling.
  • Sensitivity or Numbness
  • Inability to feel body party
  • Formication – feeling of insects crawling down the skin
  • Inflammation of the skin

Victims have the right to seek recovery following a dog bite incident for all damages sustained.  In order to properly diagnose nerve damage, a patient will have to undergo a myriad of tests, which can include MRI, CT scans, and MRI neurography. An expert attorney who has experience dog bite cases can help you determine the best way forward to get tested and take legal action.
