Dog Bite Lawyers

Dogs are known as our best friends, and for the most part this is true. Dogs can be good for home protection and in most cases act as a deterrent for home invaders. But sometimes our best friends have been known to cause serious injuries not only to their owners but unsuspecting children and adults.

Dog bites may not seem like a severe injury to some people, but they can cause both severe physical and emotional damage for the victims of dog bites. Pet owners can be held liable for injuries caused by their pets. The CDC reports that in 1994 an estimated 4.7 million people were victims of dog bite injuries. Although most dog bites are not fatal, they can still cause long-term physical and emotional scarring, as well as disfigurement.

Although any breed of dog can potentially bite someone, certain breeds have a reputation for being more aggressive than others. Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and German shepherds are known to be more aggressive than other breeds of dogs. But even smaller dogs such as Chihuahuas can cause serious injuries, especially for young children who are usually the victims in dog bite cases. Indeed, children make up around 50% of all dog bite injuries, and children who are injured due to dog bites usually require hospitalization more often than adult dog bite victims.

We love dogs but we don’t love irresponsible dog owners. Dog bites should not be taken lightly. If you or a child in your family has suffered an injury from a dog bite, you may be entitled to compensation. Compensation for your injuries in dog attacks can include the cost of your medical treatment, any missed wages, and your pain and suffering.
