At the law firm of Goodman Acker P.C., our Michigan dog bite lawyers represent victims bitten and attacked by a dog. Of course, dog owners should take the proper steps to minimize the possibility of their pet attacking someone, but the unfortunate reality is that does not always happen. Therefore it is important that you are aware of the basic safety tips that can help prevent dog bite injuries and attacks.
These safety tips include:
More importantly than you being aware, if you or someone you care about have children, it is vital that these tips are understood by them as well. This is because many children believe dogs to be their friends, and while the saying goes a dog is a “man’s best friend” it only takes a second for an animal to inflict injury and without warning.
In fact, statistics prove that children between the ages of five and nine are the most vulnerable to attacks. Additionally, the State of Michigan is the sixth highest nationally for its 181 dog bite claims.
Injuries resulting from a dog attack can result in very serious injuries, even fatal for children. It is important that if you or your loved one was recently attacked by a dog in Michigan that you do not wait to consult with an experienced attorney.
