Children who are ages 5 years old to 9 years old are the leading victims of dog bites that cause serious injuries. In most cases, dog bites are to the face of children when the child is 10 years old or younger. These attacks often come as a shock to a child's parents, and it is easy to become so stressed that you aren't sure what to do when this happens to your child. If your child is bitten by a dog, there are four things you should do.
In most personal injury cases, the question is on who was negligent. For example, in a car accident, it is the driver who was speeding, texting, driving drunk or otherwise not paying attention to the road who is responsible for covering the costs if anyone is injured.
