2-Month-Old Baby Seriously Injured in California Pit Bull Attack

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Dog Bite

Two-month-old Jemma-Linda Gonzalez was in her bouncy chair, supervised by her mother, in the backyard of their San Diego home on Monday, May 7, when a neighbor’s pit bull entered the garden, springing at the helpless infant and inflicting devastating injuries. The baby was taken to the hospital, where she has already undergone significant surgeries to treat the injuries, which include punctured eye sockets, a misplaced jawline, fractured skull, punctures to her brain, and a crack behind her ear. According to a family friend who has been involved in setting up a GoFundMe page to help cover the family’s medical expenses, Jemma-Linda is currently stable but could suffer severe after-effects for the rest of her life. It is expected that the tragic tot will need surgery to repair her misplaced jawline when she is older and may struggle to develop mentally, due to the brain injuries sustained in the dog bite attack.

The incident has been ruled an unfortunate accident, and no criminal charges will be brought against the dog’s owner. It is believed that the motion of the baby’s bouncy chair may have acted as a trigger for the pit bull’s aggression.

  • Dog bite attacks
  • The after-effects of a dog bite attack
  • Aggressive dogs

Did you know that there are, on average 4.7 million dog bite attacks in Los Angeles and across the United States each year? Most of these attacks are carried out by dogs belonging to just five breeds, including:

  • Pit Bulls
  • Rottweilers
  • Huskies
  • Alaskan Malamutes
  • German Shepherds

Pit bulls, such as the one responsible for attacking two-month-old Jemma-Linda Gonzalez, account for more dog attack deaths than any other breed. Children are particularly at risk from Los Angeles dog attacks, with the sudden movements and loud noises regularly produced by young children believed to be a common factor.
