Glendale Dog Bite Attorney
Have you been injured by an animal attack?
Although the vast majority of dogs are playful, kind, and loving, the sad truth is that even the friendliest dogs can turn and bite or attack a person. When a dog bites a human being, there is a serious risk for injury or even death involved. Dog bites typically lead to a number of painful injuries that can affect the quality of the victim’s life for many years to come. Common injuries often sustained in a dog bite attack include:
- Deep lacerations, wounds, punctures
- Permanent scarring
- Permanent disfigurement
- Nerve Damage
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog in Glendale, we can help you take legal action. Under California law, when a dog bites or attacks a human being, the owner of the dog will be held liable for any injuries suffered by the victim. This means that the owner of a dog who bites or attacks a person will be legally required to pay damages to the victim for his or her medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages, decreased quality of life, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering. Furthermore, because California is a strict liability state, the owner is still required to pay damages to the victim even if he or she didn’t know the dog had aggressive tendencies, or even if the dog never exhibited signs of aggressive behavior in the past.
