Dogs have always been extremely popular in America. According to the latest Humane Society Statistics (2012) 39% of all U.S. households own at least one dog and 12% of the population have three or more dogs. Look anywhere and you see people with their dogs. There are dog parks all over the landscape and beach fronts dedicated to inviting dogs. Here in Huntington Beach, we possess one of the earliest, largest and most popular dog beaches in Southern California. With over 78.2 million dogs in the United States your chances of getting bit are almost commonplace.
Dog bites are so common that many people never really realize the problem until they fall victim to an aggressive dog or animal. Thousands of people seek medical treatment for dog bite injuries in the United States every single year. Injury Law Central advises that you do not just shrug it off.
If you or someone you love had been bitten by a dog, a Los Angeles dog bite attorney from the El Dabe Law Firm can help you take the necessary legal action to hold the dog’s owner responsible for your injuries.
California is a strict liability state, meaning that pet owners are liable for any injury inflicted upon a person by their pet. Regardless of where the bite occurred or the circumstances of the attack, dog owners must take care to protect people from harm who come in contact with their dogs. If they fail to do this they will be liable for any resulting damages.
