Personal injury sustained from dog bites happens very frequently in the United States, and the statistics are pretty eye-opening and shocking. Americans love their dogs, and the US has about 83 million canines kept as pets by about 56 million families. There is roughly a ratio of one dog for every four humans.
Each year more than 4.5 million individuals are attacked and injured by dogs, which is about 1.5% of the population. Of the 4.5 million that were bitten last year, about 20% (approximately 885,000 people) needed serious medical attention. And of the victims that needed medical attention, half were children.
This is even more alarming when you consider what this means on a daily basis. Each day, about 1000 people are admitted to the emergency room to receive care for their injuries. In fact, dog bites are among the top 6 most frequent reasons people need to visit the emergency room.
