Although dogs are known as “a man’s best friend”, they can be aggressive, and often vicious, if not properly trained and supervised. At Katz Law, we appreciate the severity of dog bite injuries as our founder, Lior Katz, was the victim of a horrific dog bite at a young age. Lior sustained severe injuries to his face after a dog attacked him, resulting in a complex surgery, several days of hospitalization, and a long recovery process. Despite this horrific accident, however, Lior did not receive any compensation for his injuries because he did not retain an attorney.
Every day, hundreds of people are similarly rushed to the hospital because they have suffered from a dog bite injury. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over half of dog bite injuries occur at home where dogs are familiar with their victims. As the number of dogs inside the home increases, the likelihood of being bitten by a dog increases as well. In fact, adults with two or more dogs in the household are five times more likely to be bitten than those living without. However, adults are often not the victims of dog bite injuries — children are. Among children, the rate of dog bite related injuries is highest for those between 5 and 9 years old.
Injuries from dog bites can range from minor wounds to deep lacerations. There is a high risk of developing a disease as well. On average, up to 18% of dog bites become infected with one or more of the 60 different kinds of bacteria found in dogs. Rabies is one of the most serious diseases a victim can develop from a dog bite injury.
So if you or your child has sustained injuries from a dog bite, we encourage you to seek treatment immediately and contact an attorney promptly thereafter. No one should have to suffer such a painful, debilitating, and traumatic injury.
