With one dog for every four people in the United States, dog bites happen on a fairly regular basis. Not only do more people own dogs, but people live closer together, and dog-bite victims are more likely to seek advanced medical care for their bite, such as visiting a plastic surgeon. These factors contribute the rising price in high insurance payouts for dog bites.
