Dangerous Dog Bites

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

Everyone loves a good puppy video. Watching little puppies trying to climb stairs or learning how to swim. Dog and puppy videos are a great way to relax and laugh with family and friends of all ages. Statistics show that Millennials are least likely to be home or car owners or parents. Instead, they are more likely to be pet owners.

Over three-fourths of Americans in their 30s have a dog, and 50% have a cat. Instead of getting married, young Americans are living with their partners and replacing children with pets. Surprisingly, men are more likely to have pets than women because women feel as if they aren’t home enough to take care of them, whereas men are wanting to put in the time. Over $11 billion was spent on pet grooming. Millennials know that children are expensive and demanding, so in order to accommodate the declining wages and rising costs of living, pets are becoming the new family norm.

But with great joy comes great responsibility. Dogs and puppies are adorable, but they are creatures. They can be unpredictable, and some breeds can show more aggression than others. We know that puppies and dogs are the cutest when they are sweet, but when a dog bites, the cuteness is gone.

California has laws that regulate how dog bites should be handled. They dictate what rights the dog owners and the victims have. The state regulation is that the dog owner is liable for any dog bite as long as it was in public or the victim was lawfully allowed on the private property of the dog owner. This means that the dog owner is liable and responsible for any costs associated with the dog bite such as medical bills or loss of wages. This regulation is strict liability, meaning that regardless of what the victim did to the dog, the owner is still responsible.

Our Dog Bite Attorneys are On It

Dog bites can be really dangerous, sometimes fatal. Our dog attack attorneys at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg in Los Angeles are well-versed in California law for dog bites. We understand the severity of dog bites, especially when they occur due to gross negligence on the owner’s part. Our attorneys are educated and equipped to handle all aspects of a dog attack including dog bites, aggressive dogs, and the aftereffect of dog attacks. We can help you get the financial assistance you need when recovering from a dog attack.

It is common for children under the age of 10 to deal with bites around the head or the neck because they are closer in height to a large dog’s mouth. A large dog’s jaws can exert 450 pounds of pressure per square inch. This means that if the dog uses all its energy to bite, then it can cause avulsion, lacerations, and puncture wounds. In severe cases, a child can die due to exsanguination.

If you or a loved one have suffered from a dog attack or any animal attack, then please reach out to the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg by calling 310-997-0904 or clicking here. We know the way to win.
