While most dogs are friendly, some can alter their minds and bite you. Every year, nearly 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control. Most dog bites are caused by animals belonging to friends and neighbors. If you have been bitten by a dog and have been wounded, get legal help from a San Diego dog bite injury lawyer.
Dog bites can be mild or have devastating consequences. Many victims go through a difficult time emotionally after being bitten. Some of the most common types of injuries that occur with dog bites include:
Deep Puncture Wounds
Head And Scalp Injuries
Anxiety Due To Trauma
If you were bitten by a neighbor’s dog and suffered injuries, you may be able to receive compensation. You may be able to obtain a settlement for:

You may be eligible to get a settlement for future lost wages if you were permanently incapacitated as a result of a dog bite. This is true if you cannot return to work or have lost the ability to earn your previous pay due to the attack.
