Dogs are the most popular pet in the United States. It is estimated that there are more than 69 million households in the U.S. that own at least one dog. While dogs are billed as our “best friends,” they are still animals and can sometimes be dangerous. Dog bites are among the most painful of all injuries. Dog owners must control their dogs, or they could be deemed negligent. If a dog bites someone, the negligent party should be held responsible for the damages that result. If you or a loved one suffered a severe dog bite, you may be owed money for your injuries.
