Dog Bites

Dogs are commonly referred to as “Man’s best friend”

While in many instances that might be true, there are unfortunately times when that is not the case. In fact, according to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), nearly 5 million people are bitten by dogs in the United States each year.

Often people hesitate to pursue a legal claim in response to a dog bite as many bites result from that of a friend or family member’s dog and they are worried about damaging relationships. Others may feel foolish pursuing legal action due to something an animal has done and so they try to minimize what has taken place. However, if you have been injured due to a dog bite, the sooner you can seek legal help, the better.
