Animal Attacks

All about animal attack injury litigation, and how we can help.

Greenville, NC Animal Attack Injury Lawyer



Being bitten by a dog or other animal is scary, and the resulting injuries often require medical attention and treatment. This can range from simply cleaning out a wound, to stitches, to antibiotics in case of infection or a serious disease, and even surgery. 

More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States, and more than 800,000 receive medical attention for dog bites, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). At least half of those bitten are children. 

Here are more dog bite facts:

  • Almost 1 in 5 people bitten by dogs require medical attention.
  • Children are the most common victims of dog bites and are far more likely to be severely injured.
  • Most dog bites affecting young children occur during everyday activities and while interacting with familiar dogs.

Any dog can bite: big or small, male or female, young or old. Even the cuddliest, fuzziest, sweetest pet can bite if provoked. 

No matter the circumstances of the animal attack, a negligent animal owner should be held accountable. States, counties, and municipalities may all have different laws governing animal and dog attacks. Wayne Hardee can help you determine your rights under the applicable laws and assist with insurance claims and demands for compensation.
