Pasadena Personal Injury Lawyers
Pasadena, a beautiful city located in Los Angeles County, is famous for hosting the annual Rose Bowl football game and Tournament of Roses Parade. It is home to many leading scientific and cultural institutions, including the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena City College (PCC), NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and Art Center College of Design. Although Los Angeles County is beloved by its citizens, Pasadena personal injury victims are more than a little concerned with its dangers.
Pasadena Dog Bites
A survey by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta ("CDC") concluded that dog bites account for more than 4.7 million people annually. Almost 800,000 bites per year, one out of every 6, are serious enough to require medical attention. These statistics shed new light on the dangers of pet owenership.
Pit Bulls have become increasingly dangerous in Pasadena. The Pasadena Humane Society has banned pit bulls due to the many problems they were having with them. Some residents may still remember the scene from July 19, 2007. The Los Angeles Times reported that police received more than 20 calls from residents in the vicinity of North Michigan Avenue and East Mountain Street reporting that "a small pack of dogs were roaming loose in the area and were attacking residents," said Pasadena Police Lt. Alex Uribe. Three patrol cars and a helicopter were dispatched. Although the problem was taken care of, the community's fear of dogs is still prevalent. If you are a victim of a dog bite within Pasadena, it is important that you contact a Pasadena dog bite attorney to help you obtain compensation.
Pasadena Nursing Home Abuse
Americans are living longer than they ever have before. With the constant increase in residents that are no longer able to care for themselves, Los Angeles County is overwhelmed with the challenge of creating a safe environment for their elderly loved ones. Many are turning to nursing homes, but they are no longer the safe haven that they used to be.
It is not known exactly how many elderly American men and women are victims of nursing home abuse every year. The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates show that somewhere between one and two million Americans over the age of 65 have been mistreated by someone who they depend on for care. Knowing if your loved one is suffering from nursing home abuse is important. Check in with your elderly parent and the nursing home often to ensure they are receiving proper care.
