As pet owners, we know that many dogs live up to their name as man’s best friend. Sometimes, however, a dog can be overprotective and attack someone because they think their best friend is in danger. Sometimes, owners train their dogs to be aggressive, too aggressive. Remember Michael Vick who ran an illegal dog fighting ring?

Dog Bites and Medical Expenses

While it might not seem like a dog bite could cause much damage, serious attacks can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of medical expenses. For example, when dogs attack children, the injuries are often extensive, creating an average hospital stay costing over $18,000. Statistically, 27,000 people each year are forced to undergo reconstructive surgery following dog attacks. This fact makes clear the need to collect monetary damages to offset medical expenses.
