Dog Bite Statistics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 4.5 million Americans suffer from a dog bite every year. It’s not always possible to prevent a dog bite. Ultimately, dog owners are responsible when their dogs bite. If you or a loved one has been injured by someone else’s dog, you may be entitled to reimbursement of medical expenses as well as pain and suffering, among other monetary recompenses. If you have an injury as a result of being bitten or otherwise injured by a dog, call our legal team at Edwards & Kautz Law Firm at 270-908-4914.
Children Are At Particular Risk
Because of children’s smaller stature and relative unfamiliarity with dogs, they are at a greater risk of suffering severe injuries in a dog attack. Many times these injuries are to the face, and they can be permanently disfiguring and require multiple surgeries. At such a young age, an attack of this kind can incur significant physical and emotional damage that could last a lifetime. Our attorneys are committed to pursuing justice and full compensation for families who have suffered this kind of trauma as a result of a dog owner’s negligence.
