Have You Had a Dog Bite Incident?
They may be man’s best friend. However, the fact remains: Dogs bite. When they do, it can be a serious matter. Every year, hundreds of thousands of dog bite victims need medical treatment. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than a dozen of these victims will die from their dog bite injuries. Sadly, more than half of dog bite victims are children, according to the CDC. Elderly people are also susceptible to injury in dog attacks. Like the very young, older adults are less able to escape or defend themselves. Delivery men, including postal workers, also are frequent dog bite victims. Dogs bit nearly 6,000 mail carriers in 2012, the U.S. Postal Service reports. If you have been bitten by a dog in Tampa or surrounding areas in Florida, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your medical expenses and any other losses you have suffered.
