Dog Bites & How Your Dedicated Portland Dog Bite Accident Law Firm Can Help
Dog bites may only take seconds to happen but can cause a lifetime of pain and suffering. “An analysis by The Oregonian/OregonLive of 3,940 Portland-area bite investigations since 2010 [showed] that authorities have implicated pit bulls in more attacks than any dog breed.” Additionally, “…approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care.”
While joggers and pedestrians may take great care in ensuring that they are not bitten by a dog while outdoors, dog bites may still happen, resulting in a gamut of serious injuries that may require ongoing medical care, therapy, medications, and extended hospital stays. Common dog bite injuries include fractured arms and limbs, cuts, scrapes, and even concussions. Dog bites and attacks can further cause victims severe blood loss and serious infections. There is also the possibility of puncture wounds and even nerve damage.
While many dog bites are never reported, some result in compensation. For example, in recent years an Oregon, “…jury awarded more than $108,000… to a 43-year-old woman bitten in the face by a dog at an afternoon cocktail party in Yamhill County’s wine country – faulting the dog’s owners after they let him run free amongst guests.”
