The Michigan Dog Bite Lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. Discuss Medical Costs Associated with Dog Bites

The Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. are prepared to help individuals who have been bitten by a dog owned by another individual. As pets, dogs are highly valued for their loyalty and companionship. Unfortunately, they may also pose an injury risk to those who come in contact with them, especially if they are not properly restrained by their owner. In the United States, more than 4.5 million individuals are injured in dog bite incidents each year, according to a study conducted by the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project. In some cases, these injuries may be severe enough to require medical attention. In 2008, more than 300,000 emergency room visits involved dog-bite injuries.

The cost of these injuries can be considerable. Approximately 9,500 of the individuals who required emergency care for dog bite injuries in 2008 were eventually hospitalized. More than half of these individuals underwent a surgical procedure, and the average cost of their hospital stay was more than $18,000, which is considerably higher than the average hospitalization resulting from injury. Those living in the Midwest were most likely to require emergency care for dog bite injuries.

All dog owners are required to take reasonable precautions to ensure that their pet doesn’t injure others. If this civic duty is not upheld, the owner may be held liable for the consequences of their negligence. The Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. are prepared to assist those who have been injured in a dog bite incident caused by another person’s irresponsible actions to pursue the compensation they deserve.
