How We Help Dog Bite Victims:

In the state of California, a victim of a dog bite can seek damages based on a theory of strict liability or negligence. There is another state law that holds dog owners responsible even where the dog has had no prior history of attacks upon persons. Even dogs can have a prior history of violence. When a dog bite occurs, the victim typically suffers physical and emotional trauma, and thousands of dollars in medical expenses.

Victims indeed have legal remedies available to them, to seek damages for a careless dog owner’s conduct, or lack thereof, with the help of a skilled injury attorney. If you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite in Carlsbad, consult with experienced Carlsbad dog bite lawyers in order to fully comprehend the legal process involved in a lawsuit, and the potential recoverable damages.

Dog Bite Statistics and California Law

Within the United States, a dog bite occurs every 75 seconds. Of these dog bite victims, some require serious treatment measures, and more than 1,000 people need to make emergency room visits.

In accordance with California law, for a victim of a dog bite to prevail in their case, they will need to prove that:

  • The bite occurred while the victim was on public property, or when the victim was on private property legally
  • The named defendant is the owner of the dog
  • The dog bite caused the victim to experience and suffer injuries

The state law provides that the dog’s owner is responsible for injuries suffered by anyone bitten by the dog while in a private or public place. The dog owner’s knowledge of any prior viciousness is irrelevant. Dog owners can also be held liable for negligence when looking after a dog.

For example, when a dog owner permits an animal to run freely, it can be considered negligence. For victims that caused the dog to attack, victims can be denied damages. This can happen when the victim harasses the dog.

Types of Injuries in Dog Bite Cases

The severity of dog bite injuries can vary. Some common types of dog bite injuries Carlsbad dog bite lawyers see include:

  • Disfigurement
  • Rabies
  • Facial scars
  • Broken bones and crush injuries
  • Deep puncture wounds
  • Infection
