Almost 40 % of American households own at least one dog. Dogs can be wonderful companions and often become part of our families. While dog owners should be aware of the personality of their dogs, it is still possible that their dog can bite or attack an innocent person. In most cases the victims of dog bites tend to be children. As much as we love dogs in the United States, any dog is capable of biting and causing serious injury. In most cases, dog owners are responsible for injuries and damages resulting from the bite. An experienced attorney may be able to help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, suffering and lost wages.
