A serious dog bite can lead to more than just physical pain and scarring. It can lead to a lifelong fear of dogs – a fear that is so debilitating that it causes the victim to feel panic or anxiety whenever a dog is nearby.
Dogs are considered man’s best friend, but the fact of the matter is that canines are animals and their behavior can be unpredictable. Dog bites are an epidemic in the United States. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4.7 million people sustain dog bite injuries every year in the United States. Among these dog attack victims, 800,000 have to obtain medical attention and half are children.
