The most recent survey conducted by CDC revealed that there are approximately 78.5 million canines living in homes. Nearly 4.7 million people are bitten each year and more than 800,000 cases require medical attention. Liability for dog bite attacks or injuries can attach to the owner, keeper, or harborer of the pet. It is important to determine if the dog is classified as vicious or involved in a prior attack.
Potential Compensatory Damages include:
Serious Physical Injury
Scarring and Permanency
Pain & Suffering
Severe Emotional Distress
Loss of Consortium
