Dog Bites

Approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs yearly, resulting in approximately 885,000 requiring medical treatment.  If the owner of the dog knew that the dog had a tendency to bite, the dog owner is liable for the injuries their dog causes.  The owner can also be held liable if they know that their dogs had a propensity to bite.   


Dogs can inflict serious injuries on young children because of the small height.  This normally results in severe facial injuries.  Elective surgery might be necessary for these facial injuries.  Initially, there are psychological injuries suffered by the dog bite victims of traumatic stress disorder.  The homeowners’ insurance normally cover liability arising from dog bites.  $100,000 to$ 300,000 is the average amount of liability in homeowner policies.
