The statistics on dog attacks in America are alarming. Each year the number of innocent children and adults seriously injured or killed by dogs in the United States increases dramatically.
Most of these bites are to the face, causing dangers of infection, trauma and scarring. Wounds can be classified as cuts, lacerations, abrasions, crushing wounds or punctures. These wounds can often result in fractured bones and/or disfiguring scars. Frequently surgical repair is needed. Statistically, children under 10 years of age are at the highest risk for severity of attack and permanent impairments resulting from a dog attack.
Dog bites account for 15 to 20 deaths per year in America.
When you file a dog bite lawsuit, your attorney need only prove that the victim was lawfully on the premises when the dog attack occurred and that the dog attack caused injury to the plaintiff. The defendant (owner) of the dog is strictly liable for all injuries and damages suffered by the plaintiff. Prior knowledge of whether or not it was a vicious dog does not matter.
