Was Your Child Attacked by a Dog?
Children are especially at risk when it comes to dog attacks, with the rate of dog bite injuries being highest in the 5-9 year old age group. The CDC reports that children are more likely to receive medical attention for dog bite injuries than adults.
Even if a child is taught basic safety tips when interacting with dogs, sometimes accidents are unavoidable, because dogs may be unpredictable, poorly trained, or have a tendency for aggressive behavior. If a dog bite incident does occur, a trusted personal injury lawyer from our firm can stand up for your child and hold the negligent dog owner accountable.
