Beverly Hills Dog Bite Attorney

Assisting Victims of Dog Bites - Offices in Beverly Hills

According to the American Humane Society, it is estimated that 4.7 million dog bites occur every year in the United States.  Nearly 800,000 of these attacks require medical attention and 50 percent of them of involve children under the age of 12.  If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by a dog attack in Beverly Hills or surrounding areas, it is important that you contact the Beverly Hills personal injury lawyer at our firm to discuss the circumstances of your injuries.  A majority of dog bites occur on or near the victim's property and most victims know the dog that attacks them.  Even when the dog bite or attack results from a situation where the dog's owner was not negligent, a viable personal injury claim or lawsuit may be presented against the dog's owner.

Dog Bites and Attacks

The American Humane Society reports that any breed of dog can bite someone and breed-specific legislation offers little protection for the community against dog bites.  Responsible breeding and ownership is more important for the prevention of dog bites than targeting specific breeds of dogs.  Dog owners who are negligent in keeping their dogs behind fences, leashed when beyond their properties, who fail to socialize their dogs, or who promote aggression in their animals are responsible for most dog bites.  However, even the best-natured dogs may bite if provoked.  Therefore children especially should be educated about how to behave around dogs.

California has statutory strict liability for dog attacks, making the dog owner liable for injuries sustained to anyone bitten by his or her dog even if the owner was not negligent and the dog has never bitten anyone before.  California Civil Code section 3342 is the statute addressing liability stemming from dog bites in California.  Consult with the Beverly Hills dog bite lawyer at our firm for specific counsel and guidance about your particular dog bite injury claim or lawsuit.

Contact the Beverly Hills Dog Bite Attorney at our firm if you have been seriously harmed by a dog attack.
