Dog Bites in Los Angeles:
Our Los Angeles dog bite lawyers have represented dog bite victims of all ages. Unfortunately, dogs do tend to bite younger kids and children due to the in lack of size. According to a statistic from the US Postal Service, Los Angeles topped the list for 80 dog bite attacks on carriers in Los Angeles alone in 2016. The US Postal Service statistic is minor to the number of dog bites and attacks that occur in Los Angeles annually.
Not all dogs are vicious, however, in specific scenarios dogs feel threatened, or scared and will lash out and bite innocent victims out of fear. Proper training and supervision are the only ways to prevent a dog from attacking an innocent bystander. Though not all dogs are trained correctly by their owners, and when they attack a victim, it is considered negligence. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we emphasize on proving negligence and will fight for the rights of dog bite victims.
Dog Bite Injuries:
When a dog bites, their teeth are shaped to rip the skin, and that is what happens. The deep open wound of a dog bite can lead to severe infections. Infections can lead to longer hospitals stays and may require plastic surgery, blood transfusions and other types of invasive and expensive surgeries. Dog bites can also cause life-long scarring. But how can you get compensated for getting attacked by a dog? Well, dogs are usually covered under a homeowners’ insurance policy, and in the State of California, you may be entitled to financial compensation for suffering an injury caused by a dog bite.
