Animal and Dog Bites
By Kosieradzki Smith Law Firm / July 31, 2013
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, 20% of which result in injuries that require medical attention. The CDC reports that more than 31,000 people underwent reconstructive surgery in 2006 as a result of being bitten by dogs. The rate of dog-bite related injuries is highest for children between 5 and 9 years old. Children are more likely than adults to receive medical attention for dog bites. Minnesota imposes a high level of responsibility upon dog owners to help protect children and others from dog bites and attacks.
