There are about 60 million dogs in the United States, most of which are lovable pets. Unfortunately, they can sometimes bite, and, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the number of canine injuries requiring medical attention has been steadily rising. Nearly 5 million Americans every year are injured by dog bites and approximately 800,000 of these bites require medical care. A large majority of the victims are children, who are often bitten on the face.
Victims can face medical bills, loss of wages, physical pain, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. If injuries are severe or permanent, families suffer economic loss, mental anguish and the loss of companionship in caring for an injured family member. In the event of death from a dog bite, families are torn apart without any warning.
