Dog Bite Injuries Warrant A Payout: Seattle Dog Bite Lawyer
According to an article in the Tacoma News Tribune, Washington ranks 20th in the nation for the number of dog bite claims brought for injuries suffered in dog attacks. Insurers paid out a total of $13.7 million dollars for 337 reported claims— an average of about $40,000.00 per claim. Dog bites can leave scars that last a lifetime, both physical and mental. Even smaller breeds can cause significant injuries, especially to young children.
337 reported claims mean almost one person a day in Washington is the victim of a dog bite that results in injures severe enough to warrant an insurance claim.
