Dog bite incidents in the U.S.

In November 2010, a comprehensive report by the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (H-CUP) revealed how prevalent dog bite incidents are in the U.S. The report stated that every year about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs, thousands of which require treatment in emergency departments across the country.

Sadly, figures from H-CUP also revealed that for every 100,000 residents, 108.5 emergency department visits were recorded in the Northeast, including Virginia. This figure is considered one of the highest among U.S. regions.

Dog bites are dangerous, and having to spend around $18,200 for a dog bite-related hospital stay is financially draining. If you have been bitten by a dog in Norfolk due to the negligence of the owner, our lawyers at Joe Miller Law, might be able to help you seek financial compensation for your losses.
