We are passionate about representing people who have suffered due to an irresponsible pet owner’s negligence, so contact us today at 877-PET-BITE to discuss your legal rights and options.

Attacks on Children

Children are more vulnerable to dog bites than adults, as they are small and often are the same height as dogs. Incidents of dogs biting children are disturbingly common. Consider the following statistics:

  • 42% of reported dog bite injuries occurred to children 14 years old and younger
  • The median age of dog bite victims is 15 years old
  • Boys ages 5 to 9 are the most likely to suffer a dog bite
  • 77% of child dog bite injuries are facial

The consequences of a serious dog bite can include lacerations, crushed tissues, facial scars, and infections. Sadly, these injuries can also be fatal.

The costs of a dog bite injury can extend past the average of amount of $18,000 in medical expenses, and victims may have to deal with the physical and emotional trauma for a lifetime. If your child suffered a dog bite injury, we can help you fight for the financial assistance you need from the party responsible for your child’s pain and suffering.
