Who is Responsible When a Dog Attack Occurs?

Every year, approximately 4.5 million dog attacks occur throughout the United States. Dog attacks can be very serious and about half of the dog attacks that occur result in a visit to a medical facility. In addition to being very serious, dog attacks can also be very expensive with the average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay being $18,200.

Dick Freeburn was recently featured on ABC 27's Good Day PA in honor of “Responsible Pet Owners Month”, sharing why dog attacks occur and who is responsible when an attack occurs.

Dog attacks can occur due to a variety of reasons including a dog being:

  • Startled
  • In pain
  • Fearful
  • Possessive of food or toys

It is important to keep these things in mind when interacting with a dog to avoid triggering them and to prevent an attack from occurring. Should a dog attack occur, the responsibility of the attack falls on the owner of the dog. Watch this video to learn more:
