As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. One in five dog bites are serious enough that it requires medical attention.
In Maine, when a dog injures a person, the owner and/or the keeper of the dog may be responsible for the injuries that the dog causes.
