Wisconsin animal bite injury attorneysMore often than not, people associate dog bites with serious injuries. However, cats are also capable of causing life-threatening and serious injuries to victims. This is because, in many ways, their bites are actually more likely to result in an infection than a minor dog bite. Learn more about the treatment for feline bites, your risk of infection from a cat bite, and your right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries.

Understanding the Danger of a Feline Bite

Initial examination of a feline bite might not seem like a cause for concern, but the very composition of a cat’s teeth are the reason that humans become at risk. Sharp, curved, and long enough to penetrate fairly deep into the skin, a cat’s teeth can transmit bacteria into a bite victim. Yet, the holes are so small, they can quickly scab over and leave the bacteria trapped inside. This can result in an infection in as little as 24 to 48 hours. If left untreated, this infection can spread throughout the body and may even place the life of the victim at risk. As such, feline bite victims should seek medical treatment from a qualified healthcare professional immediately after the bite has occurred.
