A dog bite occurs every day in the United States, and 800,000 of the 4.5 million victims are children. Their higher risk for medical care means that a child victim is more likely than an adult to need emergency care.
Unfortunately, not all pet owners ensure that their animals have been vaccinated, and dogs carry multiple diseases that could affect humans. This could turn a small bite into a major injury, so it’s important to always seek medical attention immediately and speak to an experienced dog bite attorney about your case.
Dog bites can have a devastating effect on one’s life. Anyone who has been attacked by a dog owes it themselves to take legal action. Doing so can help you recover the compensation you deserve to go through the attack and rebuild your life afterward.
