Every year, 4.5 million people suffer an injury from a dog bite in the United States. Wounds from the result of a dog bite are at risk of becoming infected. Injuries caused by dogs should not go ignored, no matter how small or superficial. One out of five dog bites become infected with staph or strep infections. These infections can cause long-term and debilitating injuries if neglected. If left untreated, a dog bite infected with Staphylococcus aureus (staph) can be life-threatening. If you have been bitten by a dog, visit a doctor as soon as possible.
Dog bite victims are usually hesitant to pursue an injury claim after being bitten by their neighbor’s, friend’s, or family’s dog. What most people are unaware of, is that a dog bite injury claim is not a direct sue against the dog’s owner, but rather you file the claim against the home owner’s insurance policy.
