Dog Bite Injuries:

Has your loved one been bitten by a dog?

Our firm can help hold an irresponsible dog owner to account of the injuries cause by their dog. In 2008, over 308,000 emergency room visits were needed because of dog bites. Bites can cause nerve and tissue damage, lacerations, fractures, crush injuries and permanent scarring. Victims may require extensive medical care including plastic and reconstructive surgeries.

In 2008, over 316,000 emergency room visits involved a dog bite. Approximately 9,500 hospital stays involved a dog bite. The average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay was $18,200, approximately 50 percent higher than the average injury-related hospital stay.

Dog attacks can been caused by any breed. Dogs can and will attack. Small children, in particular, suffer from these attacks because they cannot easily defend themselves.

Some 56 million households keep dogs. Most homeowners and renters insurance policies cover dog bites. Dog bite claims account for over a third of all claims made on insurance policies covering homeowners. We love dogs; we also work to hold accountable those dog owners who negligently allow their dogs to injure others.
