There are almost 5 million dog bite victims in the United States each year and about half of them are children. While the population of dogs has only increase by about 2% in the last decade, the number of dog bite incidents has grown by nearly a third. By law, dog owners are responsible for their dog’s actions and most homeowner’s insurance will pay for the damages.
Injuries from a dog bite or animal attack include abrasions, punctures, lacerations, infections and scars. The victim of a dog bite or animal attack could also develop post traumatic stress syndrome with a fear of animals and the outdoors.
