Dog Bites Claims and Lawsuits

Have you or a loved one been injured from a dog bite? If so, you’re not alone. Approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur each year in the United States, and of those, nearly 1 out of 5 dog bites become infected and require medical attention.

This type of negligence led to an 86% increase in dog bite related hospitalization stays between 1993 and 2008 in the United States. And as these hospital stays become more prevalent, victims were stuck with an average hospital stay bill of $18,200. It comes as no surprise that homeowners’ insurers paid over $797 million in personal injury claims related to dog bites in 2019.

I get it. Most Americans are dog people! With over 78,000,000 dogs in American homes, these pets are an important part of our lives. And generally speaking, dogs are considered loving family members who provide companionship and happiness to their owners.

Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Sometimes dogs can become aggressive. They can bite humans, and as a result, they can cause serious injury. Certain breeds are more aggressive and territorial than others. Have you ever wondered why your homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance asks you, “what breed of dog do you have?” They need to know because certain breeds are more prone to bite and be aggressive.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury after a dog attack, you can contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in dog bite lawsuits and claims. Your lawyer will help you recover money for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost time at work.

I have experience helping victims of dog bites, and I can help you navigate the legal process. I can also answer common questions about leash laws, the first bite rule, and what can be done to obtain compensation for your injuries.

Whether you want answers to your legal questions or are in search of dog bite resources, I’m here to get you the help you need.
