When a Dog Attacks
At Dixon Law Office, we recently met with the family of a young girl who was at the home of a friend. She was just sitting on the couch. Suddenly, the dog of the family she was visiting, got lose. The dog then attacked the young girl. The vicious attack left her permanently scarred physically. She will likely bear emotional scars for the rest of her life as well.
According to State Farm Insurance Company, more than 60% of all victims of dog bites are children. The State Farm report also notes that attacks
are not limited to a particular breed. As one of the largest insurance companies in the world, State Farm says, “We believe there are good dogs and bad dogs within every breed, just as there can be responsible and irresponsible owners of each breed. Under the right circumstances, any dog might bite.”
Dixon Law Office founder, G. Grant Dixon III, agrees. “Most of the victims of animal attacks are innocent children,” he said. He continued, “we have represented people attacked by all types of dogs. Pit bulls get the most attention but terriers, Labradors, and all sorts of breeds have all caused serious injuries to clients we have represented.“
