Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
Approximately one-third of all American households have a dog. While most dogs are considered docile and obedient, without proper socialization, any dog can be provoked into biting by loud noises or threatening situations.
The dog’s owner’s responsibility is to seek proper training in obedience to ensure that the dog will not attack. If the dog is overly aggressive and prone to attacking people, the owner should be responsible for reporting to an animal shelter.
Los Angeles area animal attacks occur quite frequently, the most common being dog bites. An attack can happen to anyone; however, research shows that children are most at risk. Close to half of those inflicted with dog bite injuries are children.
Dog bite injuries often leave victims with scars and other lasting effects. Serious cases of dog attacks can even result in death. Medical costs for plastic surgery or psychological recovery can be excessive and unaffordable. If you or a loved one is a victim of a dog bite injury, you may be able to file a claim to seek financial compensation for hardships and injuries.
