Who is Most at Risk From Dog Bites?

Millions of Americans suffer from dog bites every year and some incidents involve serious injury. Attorneys can protect your rights and help you fight to recover compensation if a dog bites and severely injures you or a loved one.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 4.5 million Americans are dog bite victims each year, and one in five persons bitten requires medical treatment. CDC statistics show that 31,000 individuals in 2006 required reconstructive surgery due to dog bites. The American Humane Society reports that more than half of dog bite victims are children and, in fact, children are the most at- risk age group for dog bites ― especially children between the ages of five and nine years old. Home settings are where most children are bitten. Young boys suffer dog bites more frequently than young girls and, likewise, adult males are more subject to dog bites than adult females.

In certain situations, dogs are prone to bite. Understanding these circumstances can help you avoid a dog bite attack. Never approach a chained dog. They are extremely likely to bite. In fact, 25 percent of dog bite deaths involved chained dogs. Also, do not disturb a dog that is sleeping, eating or nursing puppies. Whatever the situation that led to a serious dog attack, consult an dog bite attorney to find out about your rights to recover compensation.

Kaine Law has more than 15 years of experience with dog bite and other types of accident and injury cases.

Testimonial
  • "I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

  • "Evan Kaine is a great attorney who kept me informed on all activity regarding my case. Always willing to go the extra mile to put me at ease. Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me. He worked with my insurance company, kept in touch with me personally, and made me aware that he was working on my case around the clock. He also helped Michael get his medical bills paid ASAP. I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

  • "I was in a minor car accident and wasn’t sure that I even had a case. I met with Evan and he explained the law in terms I could understand. I immediately hired him and Evan turned my questionable case into more than $50,000.00! Evan is upfront, honest and expects the same from his clients – and he doesn’t take half of your money! I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine. I was in a very tight position and Evan could not have been more professional, courteous or kind and, again, HONEST! Once more, as a person who has been through the trials and tribulations with lawyers, good, bad or indifferent, if you have an issue, PLEASE contact Evan and I mean this from the heart!
