Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Dog Bite Lawyers in Michigan Discuss National Dog Bite Prevention Week
Date:5/20/2013

Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

This week has been dedicated as National Dog Bite Prevention Week. National Dog Bite Prevention Week (May 19th-May 25th) is an awareness campaign designated to help prevent dog bite injuries and dog bite attacks and by encouraging dog owners to properly train their pets, and educate children on how to approach a dog.

Michigan dog bite lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent victims of dog bites and animal attacks in cases throughout Michigan. The personal injury law firm is a large advocate of this week as they see the tragic dog bite injuries that result from these animal attacks every day, and understand the importance of educating the public, especially children on dog bite safety.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated amount of 68 million dogs were kept as pets in the United States with an estimated amount of 334,000 persons treated annually for dog bites in emergency departments. (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5226a1.htm).

In this same report, statistics showed that injuries from a dog attack occurred most commonly to the arm and hand (45.3%), leg/foot (25.8%), and head/neck (22.8%). However, in children aged less than four years, the majority of dog bite injuries occurred in the head and neck region. Children in fact were reported to be the most common victims of a dog bite attack.

As part of National Dog Bite Prevention Week, the personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. has provided some dog attack prevention tips as a reminder of what to do when encountered by a vicious dog. These tips include:

  • Do not approach an unfamiliar dog.
  • Do not run from a dog or scream.
  • Remain motionless when approached by an unfamiliar dog.
  • If knocked over by a dog, roll into a ball and lie still.
  • If a child, do not play with a dog unless supervised by an adult.
  • Immediately report stray dogs or dogs displaying unusual behavior.
  • Avoid direct eye contact with a dog.
  • Do not disturb a dog that is sleeping, eating, or caring for puppies.
  • If bitten, immediately report the bite, and seek medical attention if necessary.
