Excited Dog Accidentally Breaks Owner’s Neck By Jumping On Him From Second Story

Written by Legal Terms Dictionary on March 11, 2019. Posted in Uncategorized

Personal injury laws cover a lot of ground as far as potential cases. Pets are common issues that bring people to court in droves. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur in the United States every year. Of those bites, a lot of people opt for personal injury settlements litigated by dog bite lawyers.

But, what happens when it’s your own dog who injures you? One particular gentleman is lucky to be alive all because his dog was really excited to see him.

In China, 67-year-old Liu was walking back to his home in China’s Hunan province. He had been visiting family members and as he approached his house, something crashed into the back of his head. He collapsed unconscious immediately and woke up in the hospital.

“On the sixth day of the New Year, we were returning home together. Just when we were about to reach the front door, we were suddenly stunned by something falling from the sky,” Liu reported.

At first, he thought something broke off from the outside of his house and hit him, but that wasn’t the case. Liu’s 60-pound Husky was so excited to see him that the dog jumped from the second story of the home and landed on Liu. Later, in the hospital, scans revealed that the impact from the dog caused a spine fracture that will require surgery.

Much different from being bitten by your neighbor’s off-leash dog while taking a jog. Of course, he cannot hold his Husky liable for a personal injury claim and doesn’t despise the dog for the freak, lucky-to-be-alive accident. Liu isn’t upset with his over-excited acrobatic dog but has taken precautions to avoid it happening again by putting the dog on a lead in the yard. Naturally, the dog was completely uninjured.
