Although the number seems outrageous, nearly 4.7 million U.S. citizens are bitten by dogs each year. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the 4.7 million injuries are only a portion of the total number of animal attacks reported every year. In many cases, the victims of animal attacks are children. This is most likely due to their small size and inability to protect themselves from larger, aggressive animals. Punctured skin, broken bones, and facial injuries are common animal attack injuries. Around fifteen to twenty people receive dog bite injuries that prove to be fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured by an animal attack, the owner of the animal may be liable for your injuries.
Victims of animal attacks often suffer physical, emotional, and financial hardships following the attack.
