Newspaper: Serious Rise in Dog Bites

According to a recent story in a major newspaper, there is a very sharp increase in the number of Americans hospitalized for dog bites.
If you, or someone you know, is bitten by an animal, please contact our firms as soon as possible so you can find out your legal rights in this situation.
The increase is quite frightening, and there is no scientific evidence that correlates to the rise.
Children under the age of 5 and adults age 65 and older were most likely to be hospitalized after a bite, and residents of rural areas made four times as many ER visits than anyone else.
Almost half of the hospitalized patients needed treatment for skin and tissue infections, and more than half needed procedures like skin grafts or wound debridement.
According to scientists, treatment cost an average of $18,200 per person.

  • Dear Mr. Mindell,
    Your slogan states: “Experience Dedication Success”. I believe in my heart, strongly added to that should have been, “Honest Fair Integrity”. For those are the finest principles in you, and that was my experience of what you most importantly instilled and guide your practice on. Thank you so much. I do so respect you.
