There are over 78 million dogs in homes across the county. It can sometimes be easy to forget that these animals can potentially be dangerous if they attack or act aggressively. Although dogs can be some of the kindest and tamest animals around, they can also be dangerous if they are not properly trained or controlled. Suffering an injury from a dog bite can be devastating. If the bite is severe enough, you may have to seek medical attention. If you are unsure how badly you are hurt, it is wise to seek medical treatment for a dog bite

Dog bites can cause serious physical and emotional damage. The costs of treating these damages can be financially devastating. Dog bites injuries cost victims over $1 billion every year. Fortunately, if you were attacked by someone else’s dog, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.

When You Need Medical Treatment

There are roughly 4.5 million dog attack victims every year in the United States. Dog bite injuries can vary in severity, depending on the size and breed of the dog and the nature of the attack. While some can be treated at home, you may need to seek treatment from a medical professional if you have suffered any of the following:

  • Deep lacerations that won’t stop bleeding
  • Fractured bones
  • Swelling in the bite area
  • A bite from an unknown dog without rabies tags

By taking legal action today, you can fight for compensation to pay for medical bills and any other financial losses you have suffered because of your injury.
