Dog Bites/Attacks

Dogs can be our closest companions—in the United States, over 36% of households own at least one dog.  But sometimes man’s best friend will bite. In addition to causing pain, injury or nerve damage, dog bites can become infected, putting the bite victim at risk for illness or, in rare cases, death.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 900,000 of those bites become infected. This means a dog bites 1 out of every 72 people in the U.S. every year.

WHILE DOG BITE AND ANIMAL ATTACK INJURIES CAN RANGE FROM MILD TO SEVERE, SOME COMMON INJURIES INCLUDE:

  • Nerve damage
  • Deep puncture wounds
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Serious cuts

The injuries that can result from a dog bite or animal attack can lead to significant pain along with severe emotional trauma. On top of that, you may be facing medical bills and wondering how you’re going to pay them.

 


If you or a family member has suffered an injury from a dog bite or animal attack, you may be entitled to recover money damages that will cover medical bills, loss of normal life, lost wages, disfigurement and scarring and long-term pain and suffering.
