New Study: Labradors Responsible for the Highest Number of Personal Injury Claims

We tend to think of dogs as being safe household pets. However, dogs can and do attack. When they do, their bites often result in serious injuries. "Aggressive dog breeds" such as rottweilers, German shepherds and pit bulls are most commonly associated with attacks, but a new study from the UK shows a different dog breed leading the pack.

According to research statistics from Animal Friends insurers, Labradors are responsible for more personal injury claims than any other breed, and postal workers endured the brunt of the attacks. Labradors caused injuries ranging from minor to severe, including:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Scarring
  • Nerve damage
  • Amputation

Injuries such as these can require significant treatment and medical attention. You may need to undergo serious procedures similar to those of the postal workers observed in the study, including:

  • Surgery
  • Insertion of pins and plates
  • Nerve grafts
  • Psychological treatment

If you or a loved one has been attacked by a Labrador, or any other dog breed, you deserve justice. That's where Findlay Personal Injury Lawyers come in.
