Dog Bites and Attacks

Dog Bites and Attacks

Dogs are considered to be man’s best friend, but sometimes they can cause harm and injury to us. When this happens, oftentimes a person can be considered responsible or liable for the injuries, depending upon the circumstances surrounding the attack. Injuries from dog bites can be devastating and sometimes permanent, so it is important that the victims of serious dog bites receive compensation for their injuries.

How Common Are Dog Bites?

 

Each year, more than 4.5 million people are bitten or attacked by dogs in the United States. And of those people, nearly 20% of them require medical attention following an attack. People—especially children and the elderly—can be severely injured by dog bites. Additionally, dog bites can spread germs and bacteria leading to serious diseases/infections like rabies, MRSA, or tetanus.

What to Do if You’re Bitten/Attacked by a Dog

 

If you’ve been bitten, the first thing to do is to seek medical treatment if necessary. If the wound is minor, thoroughly clean it and disinfect it at home. Take photos of any injuries and the scene of the attack. Get the contact information of the owner and any witnesses. Report the attack to your local animal control office (or the police). Then, contact a personal injury lawyer, who can advise you on how to proceed. Our lawyers at the Law Office of Raffi Khorozian have extensive experience working with dog bite victims. If you have been severely injured by a dog, contact our office for a free case evaluation.
