Attacks By Dogs And Other Animals

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of 4.5 million people are injured each year by dog bites in the United States, with damages exceeding $1 billion dollars per year. Sadly, children are the most likely victims of injuries caused by dangerous animals. Dogs and other wild animals often attack the face, which causes even more devastating injuries.

In many cases, dangerous animal attacks occur without provocation by the victim. It is primarily an animal owner’s responsibility to ensure that pets, livestock, and wild animals in captivity are properly trained, managed, or restrained and will not cause harm. In many situations the animal’s owner is responsible for compensating victims after an attack. In some situations that responsibility also falls upon a landlord or someone left to care for the animal in the owner’s absence.
