newport beach dog bite attorneysWith a growing population and dog ownership keeping pace, many dog bites and dog attacks have happened recently. There are several parks and open areas in Newport Beach, such as the boardwalk and beaches, where dog owners can take their pets, but often times the attacks happen at one's house or a close friend/relative's house.

Who is Responsible for a Dog Attack?

The dog's owner is responsible for its actions - plain and simple. Most of the victims of dog bites are children, naturally, but adults are attacked often as well. Sometimes, even unprovoked, dogs can attack, and the resulting injuries can be devastating.

These attacks are basically random events, so it's hard to be prepared for them. One thing that's crucial to a quality dog bite case is procuring evidence quickly. The longer you wait, the more likely things will "fall through the cracks." Photographs, witness statements, and geographic details are all extremely important to your dog bite case.

Dog Bite Statistics

Some of the dog bite statistics seem larger than they should be, but they happen pretty often. Many injuries every year are attributed to dogs, many more than most people assume. Part of the reason for this is many attacks go unreported.

  • 4.7 million dog bites per year, nationwide
  • Dog bites needing medical attention increased 15X fast than dog ownership
  • 850,000 bites that need medical attention each year
  • 3,000 injuries/bites among postal carriers each year

Are there Special Circumstances to File a Claim in Newport Beach?

California in general has the same rule when it comes to dog bites. As the plaintiff and not the at-fault party, you are entitled to be paid for your pain and suffering, loss of time on the job, medical bills and any other expenses that arose out of the attack. Newport Beach is no different in that you are entitled to compensation.

We handle a lot of dog bite cases here in Newport Beach because we are centrally located right by the beach. There are a lot of pedestrians in the beach cities enjoying the great weather and that includes dog owners. Sadly, many people do not keep their dogs leashed and an unpredictable or unstable dog can do a lot of damage. Bite wounds can become infected or the bite itself can leave lifelong scars, inside and out.

To find out more, you can visit our informational page dedicated to dog bite cases. Knowing your options and getting all of the information needed is half the battle. Please use our resources to help you make an informed decision about the best way to persue compensation and avoid leaving money behind that you may be entitled to after being bitten by a dog.
