Each year, approximately 4.6 million Americans are bitten by dogs. About 20 percent of these individual require some kind of medical attention to treat their dog bite injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
While nearly half of all dog bite incidents reportedly occur on the dog owner’s property, dog bite attacks can happen anywhere, and victims should know that they have rights and may be entitled to compensation after a dog bite attack.
