The Centers for Disease Control reports that dogs bite 4.5 million people annually in the States. From that number of people, one out of every five individuals bitten require serious medical attention (CDC). That means that 20 percent or 900,000 individuals have to be seen by a medical professional and therefore may cause unnecessary and unplanned medical expenses. Injuries resulting from a dog bite may result in: contusions, infections, puncture wounds, broken bones, rabies, psychological damages, and even wrongful death. It is important to seek medical attention if a dog ever turns hostile and takes a bite because this prevents additional injuries from happening. Also, it serves to provide your attorney with the documentation necessary to build a case.. The medical provider will need to know if the victim of the dog bite knows the dog’s owner to be able to gather history of the dog’s health as well as any other details pertaining to the incident. At the end of the day, dogs are very lovable creatures and provide many services to humans. Sometimes, puppies can be brought up with lots of love and care, yet turn aggressive toward others as they mature (1-3 years of age). Genetic predispositions of the fight or flight response is very prominent in dogs as it is in humans. In dogs they have two types of reactions when faced with a threat. A passive defense typically involves them fleeing or running from danger. On the other hand, an active defense is the ‘fight’ response when the dog feels threatened. Some dogs may have an overactive defense mechanism and attack even a non-aggressor.
