Dog Bite Statistics
Long Beach Dog Bite Attorney
It is an unfortunate fact that many people are victimized by dog bite attacks in the United States every year. Over 4.7 million people are bitten, which equates to approximately 2% of the entire U.S. population. Of those bitten, 800,000 require medical treatment of some type, and nearly 370,000 require hospitalization. This translates to over 1000 people going to the hospital for a dog bite every day. Dog bite attacks are responsible for 30 fatalities annually, and that number continues to increase with each new year. The majority of victims in these cases are children, with the age group of 5-9 having the highest dog bite incident rate.
If a dog has bitten you or a family member, it is crucial that you contact a Long Beach dog bite lawyer immediately. They can ensure that your rights are protected in the aftermath of your accident and seek compensation for your dog bite injuries on your behalf.
