After a Traumatic Dog Attack in California, Our Firm Can Help

Most people encounter dogs on a regular basis, and millions of households keep dogs as pets. Dogs can be unpredictable, however, and a dog may suddenly attack someone even if they had shown no signs of aggression in the past. A dog bite can result in serious mental and physical injuries to victims, and California law allows such victims to hold dog owners strictly liable for their injuries. If you or your child suffered injuries, contact a San Fernando Valley dog bite lawyer right away.

Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can cause a wide range of injuries, including the following:

  • Traumatic injuries - Dogs have strong jaws and sharp teeth that can often cause serious lacerations, puncture wounds, fractures, torn ligaments or tendons, or even the loss of certain body parts.
  • Infections - Dog bites injuries can easily become infected, especially since they are so difficult to clean. It is essential for dog bite victims to have their wounds cleaned by medical professionals to prevent infections. Dogs can also pass on diseases to victims that require extensive treatment.
  • Mental injuries - Dog attacks are highly traumatic and often violent incidents, and many dog bite victims suffer mental trauma. This may result in anxiety, irrational fears of dogs, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.

Dog owners should be liable for your losses as long as you did not provoke the dog and you were not trespassing at the time of the bite.
