Dog Bites


According to the CDC, the most common injuries resulting from a dog bite occur to the arm or hand.

The wound may not seem serious, but the bite can cause injury, pain, and even infections within the area.

The CDC states "nearly 1 in 5 people bitten by a dog requires medial attention"; and of those injured, the majority are children aged 5 - 9 years.

However even if you or a loved one can prove you were bitten by a dog, gaining compensation for pain and injury can be more difficult.

Liability of these injuries differs from state to state.

Certain U.S. states have a "One-bite" rule, protecting the dog owner from liability if the dog has never attacked anyone in the past.

Other states maintain a "strict liability" rule that holds the dog owner liable for an attack even if the dog has never posed a threat in the past.

If you or a loved one were bitten by a dog and the attack resulted in infections, disfigurement, scarring and even death, you should contact an experienced dog bite lawyer who will determine if you qualify for a claim against the dog owner.
