Dog Bite Injuries
Dogs are man’s best friends. Often times they are raised in a family from birth, and are considered an important member of the family. Despite this, the number of dog bite injuries is on the rise. It has been estimated that approximately 850,000 victims seek non-emergency medical attention each year from dog bites. In addition to that, more than 350,000 people seek emergency medical attention each year for severe injuries caused by dog bites.
