We all know the saying that dog is man’s best friend. Many are loyal, devout companions. Many however; don’t act as a best friend would behave. Sometimes without any warning at all, a dog can turn on you, or any beloved family member or friend. Dog bites are among the most common injuries treated in Emergency rooms in the United States today. Recent bite statistics show that over 800,000 American people are treated annually for dog bites. You don’t want to be a dog bite victim. Certain communities attract people who have an affinity for dangerous dogs. While dog attack injuries are all too common, you can minimize your chances of being a victim.
Some breeds are more likely than others to be aggressive. Also, the damage a dog can do varies by breed as well. Logically, a Pit bull can do more damage than a Chihuahua Doberman Vs PitBull Who Would Win. Simply avoiding being in the presence of these known dangerous breeds can mean you are less likely to be bitten by a dog, and thus not be a dog attack victim.
Some of the most dangerous dogs are as follows:
• Chow Chow
• Doberman Pinscher
• Rhodesian Ridgeback
• Siberian Husky
Often, dog attacks are actually the fault of the dog’s owner who has not properly secured their dog, such as being confined to their own property by a proper fence, or not being tethered. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a dog bite, you may have a dog bite lawsuit. First off, after suffering dog attack injuries, seek proper medical care.
Be sure to document your injuries in various ways: take pictures, even video if you are having trouble using your arms or legs, to show how your movement is restricted. Even if the bite doesn’t seem severe, have it checked out. A dog’s mouth is teeming with bacteria, which can lead to a dangerous infection. Contact a lawyer to determine if you have a legal case. Filing a dog bite lawsuit may be necessary for you to receive fair and proper restitution for your injuries. The settlement would include your lost wages, all of the medical bills you have incurred, and potential future costs, such as plastic surgery, and therapy as well.
