Best Lawyer | Dog Bite & Dog Attack

Dog bites are a common occurrence even in your friend or neighbor’s home. Many people are asked to watch a friend’s dog and a dog bite or dog attack is likely to happen when caring for another’s dog.  Remick Law Group has received four inquiries in the month of August, 2015 in both Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo regarding dog bites that have left scars.

Under the California dog bite statute, a dog owner can be strictly liable for injuries caused by his or her dog, even if the dog has never bitten anyone or shown a tendency to bite.  Liability is based upon ownership and not the dog’s past behavior.  The California dog bite statute protects victims in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog.

Dog bite injuries are traumatic and can cause significant pain, infection and bone fractures. Whether you are an adult or toddler, there is also overwhelming emotional and psychological damage, beyond the bite wounds.

Common Dog Bite Injuries

  • Facial lacerations
  • Serious head and neck injuries
  • Deep contusions
  • Bone Fractures
  • Amputations
  • Long term emotional scaring (depression, nightmares, anxiety, etc)
