Dog bites cause thousands of injuries yearly in America, with many of the
individuals attacked being children. These dog bite injuries are often
caused by the negligence of the dog's owner, who failed to properly
secure or supervise their pet. Certain breeds of dogs are known for their
aggression, such as Rottweiler's and pit bulls, and owners of these
types of animals have a duty to ensure they are properly restrained.
