Dog Bite Injuries
Millions of animal bites go unreported each year and, while most are harmless, severe bites to the face and neck or other vital areas often occur with the youngest of victims: infants and children. Dog bites can result in costly medical bills for stitches or surgeries, money which you may be able to recover if the owner of the dog ordered the animal to bite someone, or if the owner knew of the dog’s tendency to attack or bite humans. Dog bite cases depend upon the degree of negligence that the owner of the animal displayed, even if this negligence means allowing a dog to run freely without a leash against city or county ordinances.
According to the Center For Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year, and 900,000 of those bites become infected.
The additional costs involved with dog bites such as hospital or Emergency Room care, medication, scar reduction treatment, and even psychological counseling can be recovered in a successful dog bite liability case.
