Dog Bites & Attacks

Dog Attacks in Utah

Trusted Dog Injury & Animal Attack Lawyers in Salt Lake City, Utah

According to the dog bite victims group, DogBites.org, in 2016, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 77% of the total recorded dog attack deaths in the United States. Recently, Utah voted to lift the ban on what some consider “dangerous breeds” throughout Salt Lake City and the rest of Utah. Being mindful of the dangers that exist when dealing with dogs or when approaching an unfamiliar dog is key to making sure that you or a loved one doesn't become a statistic of dog bites or dog attacks. Since many dog attack deaths happen to toddlers and infants, it is important that you practice safety when it comes to approaching dogs and owning dogs.

 

Ways to Help Prevent Dog Attacks & Injuries

Helping to prevent dog injuries and attacks to yourself and your loved ones is important. Following a few safety tips and keeping away from vicious dogs and dangerous dogs is paramount for your safety.

  • Do not leave a baby or toddler alone with any dog breed.
  • Be careful and cautious around dogs who have never met you.
  • Do not approach a chained dog, especially if it is male and unaltered.
  • Do not approach a pack of loose dogs that are unknown to you.
  • Be careful around dogs who are caring for puppies.
  • Do not approach or pet a dog in the back of a truck.

If you have been injured from a dog attack, it is important that you contact a trusted dog attack lawyer close to you to handle your case. The financial toll you may take from a dog injury can be costly. Since dog bites on a human hand are so common, you could miss days from work while you recover. You may be entitled to compensation for these issues but you need to talk to a knowledgeable dog attack attorney in Salt Lake City about your case.
