Dogs Pose Injury Risks Beyond Bites According to Attorneys at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg

Jun 12, 2023

Chicago, Illinois – Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, a leading dog bite injury law firm in Chicago, has released important information about the potential harm that dogs can cause, even if they do not directly bite a victim. While many people believe that dog bites are the only way a dog can cause harm, the reality is that dogs of all sizes can cause significant injuries in a number of ways.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States. However, dogs can cause serious injury through scratching, jumping, and knocking people over.

“People often underestimate the potential for injury from a dog that isn’t behaving aggressively,” said Paul Greenberg, an attorney at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg. “Even a friendly dog can accidentally cause harm.”

Injuries from non-bite incidents can be just as serious as those caused by bites. Scratches can cause infections and scarring, while falls and knocks can result in broken bones and traumatic head injuries.

It is important for dog owners to take responsibility for their pets and ensure that they are properly trained and supervised. In addition, pet owners should ensure that their pets are up-to-date on all vaccinations, as unvaccinated dogs can pose a risk of serious illness or disease.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a dog, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. In addition, it may be necessary to seek legal representation to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Briskman Briskman & Greenberg has been providing legal services to clients throughout Chicago for over 30 years. The firm’s experienced attorneys are dedicated to providing compassionate and effective legal representation to those who have been injured due to the negligence of others.
