Video Answers to Common Dog Bite Questions

dog bite lawyer in anaheim You might not think it happens too often, but dog bites and attacks by dogs are a fairly common occurrence.

Man's best friend can turn on you in the blink of an eye, and when they do, it's somebody's moral and legal responsibility to pay for your pain and suffering.

Just because dogs are lovable creatures, it doesn't mean they can't become aggressive.

Oddly enough, dog bites and dog attacks have gone up nationally while dog ownership has stayed about the same. There's a few possible reasons for this:

  • Irresponsible dog owners
  • Drastic changes in temperature (during summer months) creating irritability
  • More abandoned aggressive dogs in shelters
  • More mixing of large and dangerous breeds

We can't really know for sure, but one thing we do know is that unprovoked dog bites will not be tolerated whatsoever. Especially in California where the law is "one bite is enough".

A dog doesn't have to show a propensity towards being aggressive or even have a past for biting. California has a strict liability rule when it comes to dog bites and anyone that owns the dog will be liable.

Anaheim Dog Bite Case Proof

There are a few things you need to prove before you have a solid dog bite case:

  1. The defendant owned the dog
  2. The dog bit the plaintiff
  3. The plaintiff was lawfully on the premises where the dog bite took place
  4. The dog bite caused the plaintiff injuries

Do You need An Attorney?

That depends on how complex your case is and the extent of your injuries. If you have a fairly simple case you may be able to negotiate a settlement with the dog owner to pay your medical costs and time off work.

If it's more complex than that, involving surgery, follow up care, mental or emotional trauma and pain and suffering then a dog bite attorney with a lot of experience would be ideal.

Here, John Bisnar discusses if you need an attorney for your dog bite case.

Anaheim Dog Owners - Beware!

Even if you have a sign posted on your premises that declares "Beware of dog" and a person is bitten while on your property, you will still be at fault. Short of someone attacking you or being on your property without consent, a dog bite is the fault of the owner and can result in heavy fees if a case is brought.

If you own a home, your homeowner's insurance will usually cover the general liability of a dog bite unless the breed has been excluded. If that's the case, you could be personally sued by a dog bite victim.
