Boy and Grandmother Mauled By Neighbor’s Dog

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

Everyone loves a cute and furry companion. Not every cute and furry companion likes other humans. Dog bites are growing in a society that is obsessed with our four-legged pets. Our dog attacks attorneys at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg represent people who are suffering from dog bite injuries. Owners who cannot control their dogs should be held responsible for their dog’s actions. Dogs can be trained, but they are wild creatures. Sometimes, they will act in ways unknowing to their owners which is why a dog owner should practice every safety precaution just in case situations. California loves its furry four-legged friends, but the safety of the people in the community is of the utmost importance.

Dog Attack Injuries

Depending on the size of the dog, people can experience a variety of injuries. If a dog with a small jaw bites, the impact is typically lesser than a dog with a stronger jaw. For example, Chihuahuas are more likely to bite, but because of their small stature, the injury will be far less severe than a German Shepard. Chihuahuas are more prone to bite. In fact, they are listed as the top aggressive dogs, but you rarely hear about it because they rarely leave an injury. Bigger dogs like Bulldogs or Pitbulls have a bite that causes more severe injuries. Common dog injuries are

  • Lacerations
  • Puncture wounds
  • Bruises
  • Internal bleeding
  • Brain injury
  • Broken bones

The age group most likely to suffer an attack is children. Because children are often the same height as dogs, the dogs view them as something to play with or prey on. Children and the elderly are more likely to succumb to dog bites because they do not have the strength to endure the attack.

For example, an 8-year-old boy and his grandmother were attacked by a dog who ran out of his house. The young boy and his grandmother were walking home from his school. A neighbor watched as a dog ran out from another house and attacked the boy and grandmother. The dog first lunged and attacked the boy’s face. When the grandmother tried to intervene the dog let go of the boy and attacked the woman’s leg. The dog latched onto the woman’s log despite other people punching it, stabbing it, and using a razor.

The dog finally let go when it was struck by a 2×4. The two victims were taken to the local hospital, where they are expected to recover. The neighbors commented that the dog has escaped the house several times and is very intimidating to others.
