Dog Bite Injuries Attorney
No one expects to be bitten by a dog or other domesticated animal. Most people love dogs, after all, dogs are man’s best friend but, not all dogs love people. A dog may think that it is protecting its home or owner or the dog may have been abused or trained by its owner to be aggressive but, whatever the reason, dog bite injuries are common and occur every day. While the dog is the one that bites, the dog owner is responsible for the dog’s actions. This is especially true if the owner knew or should have known that the dog had aggressive tendencies. In some cases, a landlord or property owner may be partially or totally be responsible for a dog bite injury as well.

Dog Bite Injuries Can Be Serious
It seems like a weekly occurrence these days. You turn on the television and there is a news story about a child having suffered severe life-changing dog bite injuries. The owner of the dog always says that the dog is “sweet and lovable” and “has never done anything like this before.”
Adults fall victim to dog bites injuries as well. Each year, nearly 5 million people nationwide suffer dog bite injuries. In fact, California reports the highest number of dog bite fatalities. Many dog bite victims suffer the loss of fingers, arms, have permanent nerve damage, disfiguring scaring and other similar injuries. While smaller breeds may inflict the same type of dog bite injury on victims, Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are responsible for most of the fatal dog bites.
Sadly, small children are frequently the victim of dog bite injuries. The playful antics of a young child may appear threatening to a dog and cause it to defend itself. Of course, small children are far less capable of fending off a dog’s attack than an adult.
California’s dog bite law is quite clear on assigning liability. A single bite is sufficient to show fault. Under California law, you need only prove that the defendant owned the dog, you were lawfully on the premises when the dog bit you and that you were injured by the bite.
