Recent reports state that insurance companies paid out more than $108 million in dog-bite claims last year. Georgia is ranked 9th in highest number of paid claims regarding dog bites.
Approximately 4.7 million Americans are bitten by dogs annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many of this attacks are fatal, and unfortunately, most of the victims are children. Dog bites are the ninth-leading cause of nonfatal unintentional injuries to children ages five to nine years old.
In addition, the U.S. Postal Service reported 5,900 letter carriers were attacked by dogs last year (with Los Angeles leading in reports among major cities.)
