The “friendly” dog in the neighborhood may not be so friendly. Many dog attacks occur near the victim’s home. Dog bites can result in minimal puncture wounds or more serious injury involving muscle or nerve damage. Multiple bites may require reconstructive surgery or plastic surgery for resulting scars. Dog bites are especially traumatic for children and may require psychological treatment, as well as medical treatment. Most homeowners’ insurance policies have exclusions for dog bites.
