What dogs are prone to bite?
Some dog breeds are more prone to bite than others but any dog has the potential to bite a person for various circumstances. Often a dog is likely to bite a person if they are provoked, surprised, guarding their territory, feel threatened, or protecting their owner. Try to calmly leave the area if you are around a dog that you believe will bite you.
Can I file a claim even if the dog bite didn't break my skin?
Yes. So long as the dog's jaws came in contact with your skin, you could potentially have a dog bite claim. Every bite is different and may result in scarring, or various internal damages. Dog bite claims can be very difficult to handle alone because of their investigation costs and the time required to handle them.
