Loyal, dependable, friendly, playful – dogs are man’s best friend. It’s hard not to want to pet a pup, even when the animal belongs to a total stranger and its temperament is unknown. This is especially true for children, who often don’t know that there’s a fine line between what a dog might consider affectionate versus threatening. Kids and even some adults may have trouble noticing a dog’s subtle cues that it is becoming aggravated until it’s too late and the dog becomes aggressive. In this case, victims often suffer a dog bite.
In reality, even the sweetest, cutest, most adorable dog can bite and cause serious injuries – yes, even the doll-sized poodle that fits comfortably in the nice old lady’s purse. Each year, dogs bite more than 4.5 million people in the United States, and almost 1 in 5 people bitten by a dog require medical attention. Children, the elderly, and postal workers are the most frequent victims of dog bites, and according to the American Humane Association, 66 percent of bites among children are on the head and neck.
Unfortunately, many people do not realize that they can pursue a personal injury claim following a dog bite – and recovering from an accident is hard enough without having to navigate a complex and potentially overwhelming legal landscape, especially when insurance companies are involved.
Knowing your rights and having an experienced dog bite attorney on your side can help ensure the best possible financial outcome for you and your family while you focus on more important things like healing, recuperating, and getting your life back to normal.
