If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a dog bite, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the dog owner. This claim can result in the award of compensation for medical care and intangible suffering. Learn more about dog bites and filing a claim with the following links.

  • The veterinary school at Louisiana State University explains that dog bites can exert up to 450 pounds of pressure per square inch, which can cause serious tissue damage.
  • If your skin has been punctured by a dog bite, the American Nurse Today website recommends that you wash out the bite with soap and water to help prevent infection.
  • Has a loved one suffered a dog bite? MedicineNet.com explains the need to confine the aggressor dog away from any first responders to prevent additional injuries.
  • The American Bar Association explains the personal injury lawsuit process for members of the general public who are thinking of filing a claim.
  • Are you looking for dog bite statistics? The American Humane Association publishes an up-to-date list of facts on its website.
