Long Beach Dog Bite Accident Attorney
Suffering from a Dog or Animal Bite?
What does it take for a dog lover to become terrified of dogs? Receiving or witnessing one severe bite or vicious dog attack is enough to cause a major shift in loyalties. While people have the right to own a pet, California law holds all animal owners responsible (liable) for any and all injuries inflicted on a person by their pet. Being a strict liability state, circumstances do not reduce the legal responsibility of dog owners in the event of a person being bit or injured. Claiming that the dog didn't mean it or suggesting it was just playing is nonsense. Injuries caused by dogs are serious and require appropriate legal attention from a Long Beach personal injury lawyer. Injuries caused by dog bites range from small cuts or punctures to major lacerations and broken bones. Some dogs may instinctively attack a person by the throat or head. This can be a devastating experience for small children. Not only have they probably sustained severe physical injuries, but emotional scars and outright trauma can forever alter that child's comfort level around dogs.
