    Dog Bite Accident Lawyers Los AngelesDog Bite Injury Liability Claims

    One of the most traumatic and devastating types of cases seen in personal injury law is a dog bite injury. Dog bites can be quite serious and oftentimes leave behind lifelong injuries, permanent scarring, and disfigurement. If you or a loved one has sustained a dog bite injury, then it is important to seek medical help for your injuries right away, and then contact the Haggai Law Firm to discuss your rights as a dog bite victim.

    Nearly five million people suffer from dog bite injuries every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This figure represents nearly two percent of the U.S. population. Children are typically the most vulnerable to dog bites, and nearly one out of every seven dog bite victims is under the age of fourteen. Since children are smaller than adults, dog bite injuries sustained by a child are typically much more serious than those sustained by an adult.

    Recovering Compensation for Dog Bite Injury

    In many instances, the owner of the dog can be held liable for a dog bite injury. Dog bite laws vary from state to state, but in the state of California, a victim of dog bite injury can seek compensation under what are known as doctrines of negligence and intentional tort. Damages that you can recover as a victim of dog bite in Los Angeles include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and diminished capacity, just to name a few. California also has special rules that are followed when the victim of the dog bite injury is a child.

    Holding the Dog Owner Responsible

    Under California dog bite statutes, dogs must not be a hazard to the community. Dog owners are given the unequivocal burden of liability for damages caused by dog bites, just by owning the dog. The owner is required, under California dog bite law to be “an insurer” of the conduct of the dog. Dog owners in California are taxed with the responsibility of preventing their dogs from biting. In a nutshell, owners are automatically held liable, even if the dog has never bitten before. There are no second chances. Nonetheless, if the dog has a history of biting people or other dogs, then this strengthens the victim’s claim against the owner.

    Our Haggai Law Firm attorneys can help you, as a dog bite victim, to determine if the owner should be the only party held responsible, or if there are others against whom you can file a claim. For instance, if the owner of the dog lives in an apartment building, it is sometimes possible that the owner of the building can be held jointly liable, since he has a duty to control what happens on the premises. This may be the case if it can be proven that the property owner knew about the vicious dog but did nothing to have it removed or restrained. An attorney from our firm will pursue action on your behalf to get you the compensation that you deserve.
