Dog Bite Accidents

Dog Bite Accidents

Each year roughly 4.7 million Americans suffer from a dog bite.  885,000 bites per year — almost one out of every 5 — are serious enough to require medical attention. (Centers for Disease Control, Dog Bites, accessed May 10, 2014.) Dog bites send nearly 368,000 victims to hospital emergency departments per year (1,008 per day), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Nonfatal Dog Bite–Related Injuries Treated in Hospital Emergency Departments — United States, 2001, MMWR 2003;52:605-610.

At America Law Center we aggressively represent victims who have been injured in a dog bite or dog attack.

You deserve compensation if you have suffered a personal injury from a dog bite or dog attack. America Law Center can protect your rights in a court of law and get you the maximum amount of compensation available.

Dog bites have been a growing concern across the U.S. As population increases more and more people are getting dogs as pets. If a dog has not been trained properly or housed safely away from any potential victims, there is a chance that the dog can attack and cause a serious personal injury or in rare cases death.

Who is Liable?

In most cases the owner of the dog that caused the injury is held liable for the dog’s actions. Even if the owner of the dog is not present, it is still the owner’s responsibility and he will be held liable in the event of a lawsuit.

America Law Center will hold the responsible parties liable and work to get you the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries. The owner or keeper of the dog at the time of the attack may be held liable for:

  • Lost income from work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional injuries
  • Disfigurement because of scaring
  • Property damages
  • Medical expenses
