Brandon Dog Bite Attorneys
The Frequent Occurrence of Dog Bites
Based on the most recent statistics from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), more than 4.7 million people a year are bitten by
dogs. Of those injured, almost 400,000 require emergency medical attention.
This is a very real problem that occurs on a daily basis. Injuries most
commonly occur to the hands and arms, feet and legs or the head and neck.
Most of these injuries are to children. Some of the injuries that are
sustained include punctures, lacerations, amputations, abrasions and fractures.
Many of these injuries are
catastrophic and require long term medical treatment.
A dog bite is very painful and can permanently scar a person both physically
and mentally. Emotional issues may arise from being attacked by a dog
which can lead to a dramatic alteration of how you live your day-to-day
life. An experienced personal injury attorney in Brandon will be able
to review all of the information concerning your case and help you file a
personal injury claim if the facts warrant it.
