Oklahoma Dog Bite
An Oklahoma dog bite can be one of the most traumatizing experiences an individual can suffer. Dogs are a common sight in every town and city across America, but few of us are aware of the dangers that lurk just beneath the surface of man’s best friend. The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta forecasts that almost four million people will suffer a dog bite this year, which in turn costs billions of dollars in medical, legal, and work related losses - and these numbers are unfortunately on the rise.
Any type of dog can be dangerous. Often it is not so much a trait of the breed, but mostly in a failure the owner to impart proper disciple in their pet. Even though precautions such as leashes, warning signs, and command words are likely to prevent a serious incident, any dog can be a potential threat. That is why owners bear the responsibility if their dog causes damage, be it injury, destruction, or death.
An Oklahoma dog bite is not only physically painful, but can leave mental scars that never properly heal. Many people who have suffered dog bites retain a great degree of fear over the trauma of their experience, which can adversely affect trust and hinder future relationships with family, friends, and pets. If you have suffered injury because of someone else’s dog, you have many options. Consult an attorney at Atkins & Markoff, and start your healing process today.
