Unexpected Injury

When we see a dog while we are out walking, the last thing we think is that we will get bitten, but considering there are nearly 90 million dogs in the US, sometimes accidents will occur. Most encounters we have with dogs are what you would expect, with everyone enjoying a good time.

When bites do occur, they are unexpected and scary. There are around 4.5 million dog bites in the country each year, with 1 out of 5 people bitten requiring medical attention. Dogs have strong jaws that are capable of inflicting serious damage to the human body. Even with minor bitescan become infected. Up to 18 percent of dog bites become infected, further complicating the injury.

There have been many cases when a dog bite requires surgery to repair, and sometimes even reconstructive surgery is required for bites to the face. Children are particularly vulnerable because they are closer to the dog and unable to get themselves away from the situation.

Sometimes, a dog owner’s negligence causes other people to get hurt. If an owner does not follow municipal leash laws and lets their dog to roam freely, they could be liable for any injuries their dog causes. Likewise, if an owner knows their dog can be aggressive and still lets it mingle with other people and other dogs, their negligence could lead to serious injuries.

Many times people are bitten when they try to break up two dogs that are fighting. If you are bitten because some else’s unleashed dog was attacking your dog, you may be able to recover damages.
