Dog Bite Injuries – Who Is Most Vulnerable to Be Attacked By A Dog?

All dogs are capable of inflicting serious damage and injuries. You should always be cautious around any animal or dog, no matter what sort of assurances the owner gives about the animal’s behavior.

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) nearly 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, half of these are children. One in five dog bites results in injuries serious enough to require medical attention.

Among children, the rate of dog bite–related injuries is highest for those ages 5 to 9 years. Not only can dog bites leave physical scars, they can emotionally traumatize children, who may forever fear all dogs.

If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog,  you need to take action right away. Call the Dog Bite Attorneys at Cheong, Denove, Rowell, Bennett & Hapuarachy for a free consultation.
