Los Angeles Dog Bite Lawyer

The majority of dog owners are responsible for their dog or animal attacking a stranger. This usually happens because the owner did not practice reasonable care when having the animal around strangers. When an animal doesn’t behave around people it is the owners responsibility to remove the animal. When a dog bite occurs the victim can suffer serious injury and require medical attention which can be costly depending on the injury caused. Victims of a Los Angeles dog bite can suffer from PTSD along with other mental health problems caused by the attack such as extreme anxiety when around animals. Dog bite attacks are very serious and can require much medical attention and therapy to recover from the experience.

How Much Is My Accident Case Worth?

How to Prove Who Is Liable For The Accident

Pet owners are responsible for keeping their animal trained in the presence of strangers. An owner will be held liable for all attacks that occur in a public place or private property. The owner may not entirely be at fault if the animal was provoked in some way such as jumping a fence to taunt the animal. If the victim trespassed upon the property of the dog, the owner may have liability waived if a sign was visible that a dog is present and possibly dangerous. Partial liability may not apply to children if they are attacked by an owners animal. Government animals such as trained attack dogs are removed from liability if they attack a suspect that was warranted. The government animal and owner is not responsible for these types of damages unless a trained government dog attacks a civilian that was unwarranted in a public or private location.
