Dog Bites and Attacks
With over 70 million dogs living in households in America, dog bites are inevitable. Children are the most common dog bite victims and get more injured due to their size and lack of defense. It is important for all dog owners to properly train and socialize their pet prior to bringing them out in the community. But, in the event you or a loved one gets bitten by a dog, it is important to know your rights.
What to do after you’ve been bitten:
- Seek medical attention
- Get the dog-biting-owners’ information
- Get witnesses’ information
- Take photos of injuries
- Call 1.800.GO.HARRIS
Being attacked or bitten by a dog can be an extremely traumatic experience. Scarring and injuries from dog bites or attacks can last a lifetime. All dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. It is very common after a dog bite incident for the dog owner to deny liability. Most dog owners do not want to admit their lovely pet is aggressive.
