Dog-Bite Injury Lawyers in Panorama City
It is common for families to keep dogs at home – in Panorama City as in the rest of the country. While many dogs can be friendly and provide good company, dog bite injuries in California do occur.
In 2014, statistics published at dogbite.org indicate that in 2014, there were 42 dog-bite related fatalities in the United States. 27 or 64% of the fatalities were attacked by Pitbulls. Rottweilers contributed to 4 of the fatalities, making them the second most lethal dog breed. Victims were usually children under 13 years old and adults 50 years or older.
Vicious dog attacks can cause serious injuries such as deep lacerations to the face and neck, puncture wounds, fractures, and damaged ligaments. Victims of dog attacks may also suffer from permanent disfigurement. In 2012, more than 27,000 people reportedly went through reconstructive surgery as a result of dog bite injury.
If you or a loved one is injured in a dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation.
California Dog-Bite Statute
The state of California has a strict dog bite statute which makes a dog owner liable for any harm that the dog causes. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, a dog bite injury attorney can present a claim for compensation to cover past and future medical bills, lost wages, costs for scar revisions, past and future anxiety, permanent disability, and emotional distress.
