Dog Bite & Animal Attacks
Animals can attack out of the blue, leaving you injured, afraid, and confused about what to do next. At Sayeh Law in Southern California, we have almost three decades of experience fighting for victims of personal injury accidents, including dog bites and animal attacks. Let us fight for you against negligent pet owners in San Dimas, Laverne, Glendora, and the surrounding areas.
In some states, dog owners can be protected by what is often called “the first bite law” if they claim that their dog never attacked anyone before and that they were not aware of any aggressive behaviors. Fortunately, in the state of California, pet owners are considered “strictly liable” for the actions of their animals.
This means that they are legally responsible for any injuries suffered by you, regardless of how vicious the animal has been in the past or whether the owner knew it would bite or attack people.
Some dog breeds are found to bite more often than others.
- Pit Bulls
- German Shepherds
- Australian Shepherds
- Jack Russell Terriers
- Cocker Spaniels
- Bull Terriers
Common Animal Attack Injuries
According to a study from the Center For Disease Control (CDC), close to 4.5 million dog bites occur each year in the United States, and 800,000 of those bites result in necessary medical care. Dog bites are often on the hands and face. Animal attacks can be disfiguring and interfere with your work and your life long after your initial wounds heal.
Children are particularly vulnerable to dog bite injuries and other types of animal attacks. These wounds can not only be painful but cause emotional trauma that will last a lifetime.
