The Michigan Dog Bite Lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. Discuss National Dog Bite Injury Statistics

(Detroit, Michigan) – The Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates are prepared to help injured individuals statewide take action against negligent pet owners. While an exact number is difficult to come by, most estimates place the number of dogs in the United States at more than 74 million. Unfortunately, this poses a risk to the health and safety of millions of Americans. Dogs may be domesticated animals, but it is not uncommon for a dog to bite or otherwise attack an individual if it is provoked or feels itself threatened in some way.

A range of different statistics illustrate the sizeable impact, in terms of physical health and costs associated with medical treatment, that dog bite injuries have each year:

  • Dogs bite more than 4.5 million Americans each year, or around 1.5% of the population.
  • The number of fatalities occurring as a result of dog bite injuries is on the rise, from an average of 17 per year in the 1980s to an average of 30 per year between 2007 and 2010.
  • 800,000 dog bite injuries annually are serious enough to warrant medical treatment.
  • Around 65% of bite accidents occurred on the victim’s property.
  • 50% of dog attacks involve children under the age of 12, with the 5-9 year old age group the most susceptible to dog bites.

These and other statistics make clear the pressing danger that dog bite injuries pose to the health and safety of American citizens. While dog ownership is commonplace in today’s society, dog owners have a responsibility to ensure that their pets do not cause harm to others. Dog owners who fail to properly restrain and allow their pets to injure others may be held liable for the consequences of their actions. The Michigan dog bite attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C. offer their services to all those who have been injured by another person’s dog in pursuing the compensation they need and deserve.
