Facts About Dog Attacks

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneySeptember 15, 2015

Dog bites can occur at any time, with any dog.  Never let your child get too close to a dog he or she doesn’t know.  Never take for granted, or presume, that a dog is “nice” or “wouldn’t hurt you” as any dog can lash out unpredictably.  Case after case of dog bites handled by our law firm proves that extra caution is always good practice when dealing with animals.

I found some very interesting facts about dog bites on the American Veterinary Medical Association website. A few of the facts mentioned are:
 

  • 4.5 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year;
  • Men are more likely than women to be bitten by dogs;
  • At least half of people treated for dog bites are children;
  • Children between the ages of 5 and 9 are more likely to be bitten than other age groups;
  • Senior citizens are the second most common dog bite victims;
  • 30,000 of those bites require reconstructive surgery


If you have been injured by a dog or other animal, contact me so I can explain your rights and discuss your entitlement to fair compensation. The initial consultation is always free.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

Greg Christiansen

My wife and daughter were killed in a vehicular incident.  I was referred by a good friend to SiebenCarey . Jim Carey personally handled my situation. The compassion, professionalism, and competence was beyond excellent.  In a most difficult  time for my son and me the help we received was immeasurable and in fact, helped our healing process.  I want to personally thank Jim and his team for their assistance.  I would recommend this organization unreservedly and totally to anyone who needs help in a tough time.
