Dog Bite

A dog attack is one of the most frightening experiences a person may endure. Although dogs are widely known as “man’s best friend,” they are still animals and therefore may be subject to instinct. They may also be abused or raised in such a way as to be increasingly aggressive. If you or a loved one has been injured in a dog attack in the LA area, please contact Pacific Attorney Group today.

Dog Bite Attorney in Los Angeles

We would be delighted to meet with you for a free initial consultation to discuss your situation. A dog bite can be quite dangerous, especially if the victim is a tiny child. The chances of a child being bitten by a dog are 3.2 to 1 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The majority of dog bite injuries occur on the face, which can lead to infection, scarring, and ugliness.

In California, dog owners are strictly liable if their dog attacks and injures another person without being provoked. The only exception to the rule may be if the victim was trespassing on the dog owner’s property or if the victim actually provoked the dog, such as by harassing or taunting it.

Though strict liability usually protects victims of dog bites and attacks, working with a personal injury attorney is still recommended if you want to ensure that you have the best chance of not only holding the responsible party accountable but also seeking fair financial compensation for your injuries.

Aside from the criminal consequences of an attack, the owner of a ‘dangerous’ dog may also be sued. Regardless of whether the police or council take action, a person injured by a dog may also be entitled to claim compensation from the dog owner.
Rabies is a deadly neurologic disease caused by a virus that spreads primarily through bites of infected animals. Dog owners should get their dogs vaccinated against rabies.
Dog bites can introduce dangerous bacteria into the body. This can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections to occur when left untreated. It’s very important to wash the wound as soon as you’re bitten and to use topical antibiotics, such as povidone iodine, in and around broken skin.
