National Dog Bite Prevention Week

The cost of dog bite litigation is climbing in California and larger settlements are being awarded to resolve these claims. State Farm reports that more than one third of their homeowner claims are as a result of costs resulting from dog bites. It was also reported that much of the settlement increase comes as a result of more severe injuries and better reporting. It was also reported that Sacramento ranks #16 nationally in postal carriers being bitten by aggressive dogs and these facts only tell a portion of the story.

More and more people are turning to dogs to protect their homes. While some of these dogs are well trained many other dogs are simply untrained at any level. Dogs have no ability to know who is a good person from a bad person and as a result they may attack without provocation. It's a proven fact and one we see time and again that the majority of people attacked by a dog are friends of the family that own that dog and often those attacks are directed at defenseless children doing nothing to cause aggression. They are children being children with a dog just being a dog. This can be a devastating and even deadly combination.

This is not meant to be an indictment of one breed of dogs over another even though there are tendencies. Both intentionally and unintentional dog attacks cause lifelong injuries. Facts suggest that well over 20% of all dog bite victims require medical care or hospitalization due to the bite. Dogs are doing what they think is their job and want to protect and safeguard their domain. Please be cautious about exposing yourself or loved ones to dogs you aren't familiar with, teach your children to never disturb a sleeping animal and avoid eye contract with dogs that appear to be threatening.
