Victims of severe dog attacks often suffer acute damage, which may require $250,000 to one million dollars in specialized medical care treatment. Reconstructive surgery, such as skin grafting, tissue expansion and scar diminishment, often requires multiple procedures over a period of years. Studies show that pit bulls and rottweilers inflict the majority of these damaging attacks.
