Dog Bite and Dog Attack Lawyers in South Carolina
It is a fact of life that dogs bite. But dog bites are not a simply a childhood rite of passage. Dogs bite about 4.5 million Americans of all ages every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Some 885,000 dog bite victims each year require medical attention – about half of them are children.
In one recent year, more than 27,000 people underwent reconstructive surgery as a result of being bitten by dogs, the CDC says.
