Defending Victims of Dog Bites

Dog Bite Statistics for Cape Cod Residents

A dog bite is a traumatic event for anyone to endure and the injuries that can result can be very serious. Children make up more than half of all dog bite victims and are especially at risk of receiving serious injury when a dog attack happens. It is estimated that every 40 seconds someone in the United States seeks medical attention for a dog bite. In the area of 1 million people require medical attention for a dog bite annually with 334,000 winding up in the emergency room.

Most dog bites occur in the victim’s home or the home of a friend or relative. Three quarters of all dog bites are not even reported. Many people may feel responsible when a dog attacks or may be assured by the owner that this was an isolated incident and pressured not to report the matter. The fact is that when a dog bites, you are at risk of serious injury including permanent scarring and possible nerve damage. In fact, there are about 175 wrongful deaths from dog attacks each year in the US.
