If you think that dog bite injuries are “no big deal,” think again.
Even small dogs can cause significant skin tears, muscle damage and scars. But, unfortunately, you are more likely to be bitten by large dogs that go unsupervised. Severe, permanent damage is common, especially to children who are ill-equipped to defend themselves. If you or your child has suffered a serious dog bite, it might be time to contact an injury lawyer serving the Brandon area.
What You Should Know about Dog Bite Injuries
When it comes to dog bite injuries, you should know the following:
- The United States has nearly 4.7 million dog bites every year.
- Nearly one-quarter of these bites call for emergency medical attention.
- It’s not just strange dogs you need to be aware of; most victims know the dogs that bite them.
Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help You?
Unless you were trespassing, or somehow provoked the dog into attacking, the owner may have to pay for your injuries and suffering. But sometimes it’s difficult to know what constitutes “provoking.” In times like these you may want an experienced attorney to help you navigate the complex world of injury law.
