Dog Bite Compensation in Michigan
With over 39% of American households owning at least one dog, it is easy to see why they are considered man's best friend. They are great companions and are considered by most dog owners as a part of their family. However, we need to remember that they are still animals and may attack viciously and without warning. In fact, 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year and 1 in 5 of those victims requires medical treatment. Often times the treatment received is minor and may only require a bandage or a few stitches. However, it can be much worse. Reports from the Center for Disease Control show that on average each year 31,000 Americans undergo reconstructive surgery as a result of being bitten by a dog and that 17 Americans actually die from dog attacks.
