Here at the Charles E, Boyk Law Offices, LLC, our Whitehouse dog bite attorneys have represented victims of animal attacks and dog bites throughout Ohio. Representing a large spectrum of clients, we handle dog bite cases that include children, postal workers, utility workers and more. The National Canine Research Council released their statistics from 2010 which found that although pit bulls remain a small part of the dog population, they make up for the majority of injuries and fatalities every year due to dog bites and attacks. They are considered one of the most dangerous breeds. If you have been attacked by a dog, hire skilled dog bite lawyers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2006 and 2008 pit bulls were responsible for 60% of all dog bite fatalities in the U.S.
Other dangerous dog breeds to look out for include:
- German Shepherd
- Pres Canario
- Doberman Pinschers
- Chow Chow
Many times dog bites can result in severe injuries such as disfigurement resulting from scars, injection, broken bones, nerve damage, and even pain and suffering. About 1,000 U.S. citizens require emergency care treatment for a dog bite injury every year. The majority of those injured are children ranging in age from 5-9 years old. In order to prevent dog bites it is important to keep an eye on younger children that are playing around a dog at all times. It is also important to neuter your animal and seek professional help as soon as your dog begins to display aggressive behavior.
