Michigan Child Dog Bite Information

“Every 40 seconds a person is bit by a dog in the United States. That’s a lot of bites. That’s a lot of trauma that occurs especially when we’re dealing with young kids. Children want to play with dogs. They want to pet dogs. They want to not be afraid of dogs. Dogs are supposed to be a source of comfort and they’re supposed to be friendly and kids naturally gravitate to dogs. If your child is bit by a dog it is a very traumatic event. That child will remember that bite for the rest of their life, unfortunately. If a child is bit in the face it’s even more traumatic because there’s visible scars that can be seen in that child. A child for the rest of his life is going to have to explain where the bite occurred, how the scar happened on your face and it’s very important that people understand it’s not just a physical injury but it’s a mental and emotional injury. That child needs the care of professionals. Sometimes parents don’t have health insurance to cover these issues and sometimes they need to obtain compensation to get their child the care they’re going to need for their future and that care comes from professionals that understand the trauma of being bit by a dog in your own neighborhood.”
