Dog Bites

Dogs are known as very lovable companions that are known to be kind. However, there are specific breeds that are naturally more aggressive and require specific training to ensure they are not a danger to the public. Unfortunately, there are many dog owners that refuse to train their dogs or purposely train their dogs to be more aggressive for protection purposes. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had reported over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs every year in the U.S. All types of injuries, whether physical or mental, should be addressed and treated properly. The cost of the treatment you receive, or any other type of cost that are incurred from an accident, is not something you should have to pay if they were caused due to the negligence of another.

Most Common Causes of Dog Attacks/ Bites:

+Possessiveness: Dogs are very territorial and it is possible that they will attack if they believe their food, toys, and puppies are going to be taken away. Dogs can also be territorial over other dogs and owners.
Provocation: Teasing a dog and provoking them in anyway can cause them to attack.
