Statistics for Dog Bites

Some of the statistics for dog bites can be very shocking. For example:

  • Every year, more than 4 million people suffer dog bites, and as many as 1 million people in the United States seek out medical treatment for dog bites.
  • Some experts estimate that for every 1 attack reported, 3 are unreported.
  • Over 334,000 of these victims require emergency room care.
  • Approximately half of dog bite victims are children.

In order for the dog owner to be liable, a powerful and conclusive claim must be built. At Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP, we're proud to offer strategic and knowledgeable representation for clients facing serious injuries. Our NYC personal injury attorneys are well-versed in premises liability and dog bite laws and can answer your questions and provide the guidance you and your family deserves.
