Los Angeles Dog Bite Lawyers

Helping Dog Attack Victims in Southern California

In California, dog owners are responsible if their pets attack other animals or people. They are responsible for medical bills even if their dogs had no history of aggression, and even if they did not act negligently in handling their dogs. Only a provoked dog attack may not be covered. If the owner did act negligently or the dog had a history of biting or acting aggressively, the owner may be responsible for additional damages, such as emotional trauma and lost earnings.

Dog Bite Safety Tips

Sometimes dogs attack with no reason, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your children. Taking these steps may help you avoid an attack in the first place:

  • Never try to pet an unleased and unfamiliar dog, particularly on its own territory.
  • Don’t bother a dog when it is eating, sleeping, or playing with a toy.
  • Don’t bother a female dog when she is caring for her puppies.
  • Always be aware of a dog’s body language.

If a dog approaches you and seems aggressive:

  • Do not make eye contact.
  • Do not run away.
  • Try not to scream or make any frightened noises.
  • With your eyes lowered, stand still or slowly back away.
