Dogs may be considered man’s best friend, but when a dog isn’t properly socialized, trained and supervised, dog owners are putting you at risk of an attack and injury. Dogs are responsible for approximately 800,000 medical visits in the United States each year. In fact, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports nearly 4.7 million dog bites per year in the US, which equates to about 1 in every 69 Americans being bitten by a dog each year.
Dog bite victims are often left with medical bills, permanent scarring and pain and suffering. If you or a loved one is the victim of an attack by a dog or other animal in Pennsylvania, it’s important to find an experienced attorney to protect your rights. Qualified Counsel can help you find the right lawyer for your case.
