Although the numbers seem outrageous, nearly 4.7 million U.S. citizens are bitten by dogs each year. This information, provided by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, only recognizes the injuries caused by dogs which is a mere fraction of all animal injury cases that are reported each year. Unfortunately, the victims of animal attacks are most often small children. This is likely due to their size and inability to protect themselves from attack. Punctured skin, broken bones, and facial injuries are all common injuries that result from an animal attack. Around fifteen to twenty people die each year from dog bite injuries alone. If you or a loved one has been injured by an animal attack, the animal owner may be liable for your injuries.
