Who is Most at Risk From Dog Bites?

Millions of Americans suffer from dog bites every year and some incidents involve serious injury. Attorneys can protect your rights and help you fight to recover compensation if a dog bites and severely injures you or a loved one.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 4.5 million Americans are dog bite victims each year, and one in five persons bitten requires medical treatment. CDC statistics show that 31,000 individuals in 2006 required reconstructive surgery due to dog bites. The American Humane Society reports that more than half of dog bite victims are children and, in fact, children are the most at- risk age group for dog bites ― especially children between the ages of five and nine years old. Home settings are where most children are bitten. Young boys suffer dog bites more frequently than young girls and, likewise, adult males are more subject to dog bites than adult females.

In certain situations, dogs are prone to bite. Understanding these circumstances can help you avoid a dog bite attack. Never approach a chained dog. They are extremely likely to bite. In fact, 25 percent of dog bite deaths involved chained dogs. Also, do not disturb a dog that is sleeping, eating or nursing puppies. Whatever the situation that led to a serious dog attack, consult an dog bite attorney to find out about your rights to recover compensation.
