Dog Bite Statistics
Annually, non-fatal dog bites result in roughly 800,000 Americans requiring medical attention or restricted activity.1 Additionally, dog bites are responsible for roughly 300 American deaths each year.2
Recovery for Dog Bites
Recovery associated with dog bites cannot be readily measured due to the fact that dog bites often result in severe intangible quality of life issues.3 Generally, victims of dog bites can recover for both economic costs and non-economic repercussions. Economic costs include lost past and future earning, medical and rehabilitation expenses, and loss of future earnings. Non-economic recovery can include recovering for pain and suffering due pain and quality of life repercussion resulting from the dog bite.
Most Dangerous Dogs
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) national statistics, at least 30 breeds of dog are known to have attacked humans. Ten of these dogs made it on the CDC’s list of the most dangerous dogs due to being the most frequent breeds responsible for attacking humans. These dogs include: Rottweilers, Pit bulls, Doberman Pinschers, Chow Chows, German Shepherds, Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Akitas, Great Danes, and St. Bernards.4
