An animal attack can cause serious and sometimes fatal injury. Every day, about 1,000 U.S. citizens require emergency care treatment for dog bite injuries. Most of the attacks involve children. Among children, the rate of dog bite–related injuries is highest for those ages 5 to 9 years, and children are more likely than adults to receive medical attention for dog bites.

Resolving attack injury cases require expertise because injuries from an attack are individualized. Because the skin and muscle is torn, scarring is permanent and different for each person. The treatment and the healing process are difficult, painful and expensive. The average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay is $18,200, almost twice as much as an average injury related hospital stay.
The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog-bite claims each year. When handling these claims, it is important to remember that each injury must be addressed separately as a portion of the larger case. Besides addressing the obvious pain and trauma and future medical treatment, there is also scarring, revision surgery, and medical bills.
