Ouch! Most common dogs ranked for bite injuries

Our furry, four-legged friends may turn into enemies when they snap and attack unexpectedly. It can happen at a moment’s notice and injuries could lead to surgeries, temporary loss of mobility, trauma and more. Unfortunately, small children are at the highest risk of getting badly injured by a dog bite. It can be devastating to try and recover trust in an animal that has caused physical and emotional pain.

You and your loved ones deserve to be prepared to handle matters should a dog bite happen. This means keeping an account of any medical costs associated with the injury and taking plenty of pictures and witness statements if moving forward with legal action.

Dog breeds known to bite the most

Dogs that get a bad reputation for causing injury are also in danger of lawsuits by the injured party. The dogs considered most likely to bite include the following:

  • Pit Bull
  • Lhasa Apso
  • Cocker Spaniel
  • Bulldog
  • Chihuahua
  • German Shepherd
  • Jack Russell Terrier

In addition to these breeds, note that dogs that have not been spayed or neutered are also more likely to snap and bite out of aggression. You never know what other issues a dog may be having that makes them prone to biting. There could be mental deterioration or medical problems such as blindness making a dog more on-guard and feeling generally unsafe to the environment around them.

Legal justice for dog bite victims

Too often, families facing a dog bite issue are lost as to how to approach the issue from a legal standpoint. Thankfully, there are legal resources to help guide you through what you can and cannot do in legal defense. Don’t be afraid to fight back with legal action to compensate for pain, suffering and damages sustained by the attack. Negligence of a dog owner may be proven in court and allow you to receive a settlement and enforce rules that prevent the same experience from happening to someone else.
