There are about 60 million dogs in the United States, most of which are lovable pets. Unfortunately dogs sometimes bite and according the Centers for Disease Control the number of dog bites requiring medical attention has been steadily rising. The number of dog bite injuries is more than the reported cases of mumps, measles and whooping cough combined.
Each year approximately 800,000 dog bites occur nationwide that require medical care.
The American Humane Association says the most severe attacks happen because city dwellers select large, aggressive breeds of dogs for personal protection.
If you have been bitten by a dog, be sure and get the information from the owner of the dog so that your medical bills and injury can be fairly compensated. Most home owners insurance policies provide coverage for these type of cases.
