While all dogs can be potentially dangerous, there are certain breeds that are especially prone to aggressive behavior toward humans. If you have been the victim of a dog bite attack, you may have a valid legal claim against the dog’s owner for negligence. It is the owner’s responsibility to make sure the dog does not endanger the safety of others.
According to reports by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), and the Humane Society of the United States, the following breeds have the most potential for aggression against humans if provoked:
- Pit bull
- German Shepherd
- Alaskan Malamute
- Doberman Pinscher
- Chow Chow
- Presa Canario
Dog bite wounds often require surgery, potentially costing thousands of dollars and leaving physical reminders of the attack. At The Cochran Firm South Florida, we understand what dog bite victims go through, and we will fight diligently to get you the compensation you deserve.
