Cypress Dog Bite Attorneys

No one wants to have a dog “put down” for biting. However, by allowing their pets to develop bad behaviors, many Cypress dog owners sentence their pets to death for this very infraction. It is the owner's responsibility to see that the dog is well-trained and well-behaved, but many dog owners do not think of this until someone has already been bitten. Cypress dog bite lawyers work with the victims of dog bite attacks to give them the support they need to pursue a case against a negligent owner.

Dog bites are some of the most common physical injuries in our country. Of the millions of dog bites that occur every year, at least 850,000 make their way to emergency rooms across the country; at least 350,000 of those require medical treatment. This means that a large percentage of dog bites are not friendly snaps or nips, but honest attempts by an aggressive animal to injure a person. In most cases, the dog bites a stranger or visitor to the home, although some very serious cases of bites to owners have also been documented.

Dog bite attorneys in Cypress begin the process of pursuing a dog bite claim by reviewing the facts of the case. Although most dog bite cases settle quickly, some require more work, especially if the damages have been extensive. Some types of dog attacks are highly publicized and emotionally charged, such as those by pit bulls.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, pit bull types are responsible for more than twice the number of fatal attacks as any other breed, followed closely by Rottweilers. Proponents for these dog breeds have claimed that poor ownership skills, and not the dogs themselves, are the reasons for these numbers. These are two of the most popular breeds selected for dog fighting, so some experts speculate that while the breed itself is not threatening, the fact that so many of these animals are being bred and taught to be aggressive makes them a problem.

On the other hand, the vast majority of dog bites have nothing to do with pit bulls or any specific breed. In fact, a damaging bite to the hand is far more common than mauling of the victim, and any dog can be associated with biting a person's hand. Smaller breeds may actually be more likely to bite in this way out of fear or intimidation.

No matter how the bite happens, once it has occurred the owner must take responsibility. It does no good for the owner to claim, “He never bit anyone before! Any bite is a bad bite, and can lead to further problems as the dog discovers it can behave in this way. It is very important to hold dog owners accountable so that they do not allow their animals to become more and more aggressive.

If you have been the victim of a dog bite accident, it is important that you discuss your case with an attorney immediately, and pursue damages against the owner of the dog. Please call us at 949-203-3814 for a free consultation.
