You often hear the phrase, “A dog is a man’s best friend.” Unfortunately this is not always the case. Believe it or not, dog attacks are more common than you might think. Approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year, which means about one in 72 people will be the victim of a bite or attack by a dog.
If you or a loved one has ever been a victim of a dog bite, then you are eligible for compensation with the help of a lawyer. Don’t hesitate to call Robert J. DeBry & Associates to receive the most experienced counsel for personal injuries and dog attacks.
On June 11, an 8-year-old boy was playing in his backyard, just north of Farmington, Utah, when his ball went over the neighbor’s fence. The boy proceeded to jump the fence in order to retrieve the ball when three pit bulls attacked him. The dogs brought him to the ground and dragged him several feet before the boy’s mother heard the commotion and went to help.
The boy suffered soft tissue damage as well as abrasions and some puncture wounds all over his body. Since that time, the family has reached out to their personal injury lawyer for assistance in handling the case.
