Have you or a loved one been injured as a result of a dog bite? Each year, about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs and one in five of those people require medical attention. Children have an increased risk, as they are more naive to the way a dog may react. They are more likely to need medical attention than an adult.
Attacks by dogs can be frightening and may lead to painful injuries. Sometimes, if a young person has been bitten by a dog, they may have scars for life, both physically and psychologically. Between broken bones and wounds, dogs can cause serious injuries.
