We enjoy dogs. And for the most part, if we treat them well, they will return the favor. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Here are some sobering statistics:
- There are over 4.5 million dog bite sufferers every year.
- Of those, nearly 1 million require medical attention.
- Dog bite cases have increased more rapidly than the national increase in dog ownership.
- On average, 15 victims of dog bites die every year, with the greater part of them being children.
Dogs are like friends and family, but they also have the potential of inflicting a great amount of pain on humans. If you have suffered a dog attack, you have legal rights.
