National Dog Bite Prevention Week

Posted on May 20th, 2013 No Comments

National Dog Bite Prevention Week recently kicked-off on May 19. Currently, Michigan ranks 6th in terms of dog attacks, according to the United States Postal Service.

About $4.6 million was paid by insurance companies due to 151 dog-bite-related claims last year in Detroit. Also last year, there were 33 dog attacks on postal workers in Detroit reported. In recognition of these statistics and the week’s significance, the American Veterinary Medical Association gave people five tips for preventing dog attacks:

  • Walk by a dog; do not run.
  • Do not mess with or disturb dogs that are nursing puppies, sleeping, or eating
  • Do not move if a dog sniffs you
  • Be calm and avoid eye contact if threatened by a dog
  • Curl up like a ball if attacked and protect your head and neck

Dog bite occurrences are more frequent during the spring season, Allen Park Post Office supervisor Ken Moore said.

Sustaining dog bite injuries due to the actions of negligent owners is frightening and often extremely devastating. If this happens to you or to a loved one, Ravid & Associates, P.C., may be able to help you seek compensation from the responsible dog owner. Call 877-PET-BITE today to discuss your situation.
