A recent comprehensive study of Dog Attack injuries revealed that dogs bite approximately 4.7 million Americans every year.  Of these, about 800,000 dog bite victims require medical attention.  Each year, 2% of the population is bitten. Sadly, almost half of these victims are children.

A dog bite can be a traumatic event that results in serious or permanent injury.  Some attacks are so vicious, they result in death.  However, most of time, the bites will result in nerve damage, permanent scarring and psychological harm that lasts well beyond the physical injury.

What should I do if I am attacked?

  1. Try to identify the dog that attacked you
  2. See if you can get the address of the house where the dog bite occurred
  3. Seek medical attention immediately

After receiving medical treatment, try to find out as much information as you can about the dog that attacked you, including whether or not the owner has insurance.

What am I entitled to as a dog bite victim?

It is nearly impossible to state an average settlement for a dog bite claim, however some things you may be entitled to are as follows:

  1. Medical bills
  2. Pain and Suffering
  3. Lost Wages
  4. Future Plastic Surgery, if applicable
  5. Physiological counseling, if necessary
