Why You Should Call an Attorney Immediately After a Dog Attack
According to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics, the most dangerous dog breeds are pit bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Chows, and wolf hybrids. It is important to remember, however, that even the most gentle breed of dog can bite without warning or provocation. CDC statistics show that dog bite injuries and fatalities have been rising steadily in the U.S. Throughout the eighties and nineties, there were, on average, 17 dog bite-related fatalities in the United States each year. By 2007, however, that number climbed to 33 – almost twice the average of the previous two decades. Dog bites also result in literally hundreds of thousands of emergency room visits every year.
Dog attack injuries can be severe – especially if the victim is a child. If you have been injured in a dog attack, the dog’s owner can, in most cases, be held responsible for the injuries inflicted by his or her pet. Dog bite injury cases can be complex, however. It is important to work quickly to identify the attacking dog and its owner, collect witness statements, document your injuries, and preserve evidence at the scene of the attack. That is why it is wise to call a dog bite injury attorney immediately following the attack.
