Nearly 4.5 million Americans suffer from a dog bite every year. Of those, about 885,000 require medical attention. In 2012, more than 27,000 people had reconstructive surgery as a result of dog bites.
A dog bite is often related to a premises liability as well as a loose dog roaming the neighborhood. The dog owner is ultimately responsible for any damage the dog causes. You may be entitled to reimbursement of medical expenses as well as pain and suffering among other monetary recompenses. If you have serious injury as a result of being bitten by a dog, please call Edwards & Kautz of Paducah, KY.
