Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries

Dogs bite about 4.5 million people annually, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). About 885,000 people, or almost one in five of those who are attacked, need medical treatment. Additionally, tens of thousands of people need reconstructive surgery as a result of their injuries.

Common dog bite injuries include:
  • Lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Facial and body scarring
  • Nerve damage
  • Infections from scrapes and lacerations

With so much at stake, dog bite injury victims need someone to stand up for their legal rights. Call Metzger Wickersham today at (888) 286-2850 to schedule a free consultation.

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.
