Dog is man’s best friend, or so the saying goes anyway. When it comes to companionship, there is not pet quite like a dog. After all, who else will accompany you on beach walks, sit by your fit at home, and even help make you feel safe when you are alone? Unfortunately, humans’ relationship with their four-legged friends is not always quite so positive, and the fact remains that dogs are animals, capable of inflicting catastrophic injuries. As many dog attack victims know, the beloved family pet can also be a wild animal, with strength and teeth making it capable of severely injuring both adults and children. If you have been hurt by a dog, a North Miami Beach dog attack attorney from Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA could be your key to recovering the compensation you deserve.
While you may think that your dog would never harm anyone and, in most cases, that is true, it is not the most feared dog breeds that actually cause the worst dog bite injuries. Many people believe that pit bulls, Rottweilers and similar breeds are the most vicious and aggressive dogs, but did you know that the breed which has the worst record for unprovoked attacks is the family favorite Labrador retriever?
