Watch Out: Dog Bites Increase in the Summer

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on July 5, 2012

Summer means taking your children to the pool, the lake and out to the park. But even though kids love hanging outside in the summer sun, keep an extra eye on them while they are outdoors since dog bites increase during summertime.

Adam Winefeld, a plastic surgeon, states that they see an increased number of children injured by dog bites in the summer because children are exposed to them more. Kids spend a lot of their free time outside and sometimes can be unsupervised while they are near dogs.

Children are three times more likely than adults to get bitten by a dog, and infants and toddlers are even more at risk. Since they are at a dog’s eye level, they can seem more intimidating to a dog. 

If you are out with your children this summer, make sure you keep your kids a safe distance from dogs that may be running around leash-free at the park or lake. 

Last year there were 29,000 reconstructive surgeries due to dog bites nationwide, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. If you or your child was the victim of a dog bite, due to an owner’s negligence, you don’t need to suffer any longer. You should contact the Law Office of W.T. Johnson today to get the justice you and your child deserve.
