Every 40 seconds someone needs medical attention for a dog bite injury, according to the American Humane Association. Dog bite injuries happen more often than car accident injuries, fire and burn injuries, and motorcycle accident injuries.
Nearly three out of four dog bite victims in the United States every year are children under the age of 15. Children are at least three times more likely to suffer from a serious dog bite injury than adults are. Children are naturally curious, wanting to touch everything in sight and play with any animal they meet.
Unfortunately, some owners neglect their responsibility to properly socialize and monitor their dog's behavior, which can have devastating and lasting effects. Minnesota dog bite accidents can result in catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, severe lacerations, permanent scarring, disease and infection, and even death.
