There are more than 60 million dogs in the U.S, and 40% of all U.S. households own one. For the most part, dogs and humans get along famously. However, there are 300,000 dog bites per year that require medical treatment, and most of the victims are children (60%). Unfortunately, some of the injuries can be quite severe and can include: rabies, lacerations, emotional trauma, fractures, head injuries and/or death.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Over 4.7 million people are bitten each year in the United States.
Approximately 16 people die annually from dog attacks.
Most dog bite victims are children.
If you are involved in a dog bite injury, you need to know your rights. You may be able to get compensation for medical bills, future medical treatments, psychological counseling, loss of earnings, pain and suffering and disfigurement.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident
it is important to protect your legal rights.
