These incidents happen all the time

Dogs are arguably the most popular pets in the United States. Estimates say that there are around 90 million dogs in US households and that around half of all household have at least one dog.

  • There are around 4.5 million dog bites in the US each year.
  • The CDC says that nearly 1 in 5 people bitten by a dog requires medical attention.
  • Every 40 seconds, someone in the US seeks medical attention from a dog bite.

Most dog bites are minor, and people require little to no care at all. However, for the nearly one million bites that do require a hospital visit, the injuries can be devastating.

  • Older adults and children are particularly susceptible to serious injuries when it comes to dog bites and attacks. They are less likely to be able to defend themselves or get away from the situation.
  • More than half of all dog bite victims are children.

Dogs have powerful jaws, and dog bites can inflict serious soft tissue damage as well as damage to arteries and veins. In many cases, dog bites cause disfigurement and impaired mobility for victims. Surgery is often required to restore a person’s functionality and appearance.

How do these injuries occur?

Many dog bites are caused when a dog is scared or when someone reaches for the dog’s food bowl. Often, though, dog bites occur due to owner negligence. In some cases, dog owners:

  • Let their pets roam around off of their leash in violation of municipal leash laws.
  • Let dogs that have a history of aggression mingle with other dogs and people despite orders to not do so.
  • Fail to secure their dogs on their property. This can include failing to close a kennel or fence on the property or someone leaving a house door open.
