Dogs have been loyal human companions for thousands of years, but unfortunately, as with any animal living alongside us, there is always a risk of interactions taking a horrific turn. Millions of dog attacks occur every year, often leaving victims with severe physical injuries, great emotional distress, and insurmountable debt.

Medical complications from dog bites in Dallas are common, for example, serious infection from dog bites occurs in about 10-15% of victims. It is extremely important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a dog attack, even if injuries appear minor, in order to protect your health and ensure the condition does not worsen.
