What To Do After A Dog Bite
More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year nationwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About one in five people bitten by dogs – about 885,000 people – require medical attention for dog bite-related injuries. In certain extreme cases, some dog bites can prove fatal. In such cases, your family may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
Animals that bite or attack people constitute a serious danger. Such dog owners may be legally liable for the consequences of such incidents. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury from a dog bite or other animal attack, contact the Louisville dog bite lawyers of the Slechter Law Firm, serving clients in Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee. We can work with you to make sure you get the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Though most animals we keep as pets are domesticated, some may revert to their instinctual habits occasionally. Certain dog breeds are more dangerous than others as well. Some of the more dangerous dog breeds include pit bulls, German Shepherds and Rottweilers.
