How California’s Dog Bite Laws Protect You

Strict liability is the law of the land in California. The owner of a dog is always responsible for the actions of the animal, regardless of the animal’s history of attacks or aggression. The fact that the dog followed through with the bite is usually enough to hold the dog owner liable in court. It can be tempting to want to resolve this matter on your own by consulting with the dog bite owner and coming up with your own settlement amount.

In fact, a dog bite owner may be tempted to follow through with a quick settlement. A quick settlement could minimize the potential payout of the dog owner by encouraging you to take a settlement offer early.

You should never accept a quick settlement offer until you have had the opportunity to talk to an Oceanside dog bite lawyer. An experienced dog bite lawyer will be able to explore the full extent of your medical injuries. If you accept a quick settlement offer, you may be robbing yourself of the opportunity to receive full and fair compensation for your injuries. You should never downplay the impact that a dog bite attack can have.

The emotional trauma associated with a dog bite could leave a victim scarred for many years to come. It can be especially difficult for children to recover from a dog bite attack. Although certain breeds may be more likely to bite individuals compared to other breeds, it is important to remember that any dog can attack you at any time.

Causes of Oceanside Dog Bite Accidents

It is very common with dog bite attacks that victims are not prepared for an animal to suddenly lunge towards them and to bite them. A great number of dog bite accidents involve children. This is primarily because younger individuals are more likely to interact with animals. The low height of young individuals makes them more susceptible to sustaining critical injuries in a dog bite attack.

Children may be tempted to pet or walk near an animal, thinking that it will be friendly. Unfortunately, an animal that becomes aggressive very quickly can compromise a child’s entire safety. You may be eligible to file a claim on behalf of your child to compensate for any injuries associated with a dog bite.

It is in your best interest to consult with an Oceanside dog bite lawyer as soon as possible to fully protect yourself and the child. Getting advice from an experienced attorney is one of the most important things you can do immediately after the incident happens.

It can be difficult to figure out the full extent of the injuries. It can also be difficult to decide if you want to move forward with a personal injury claim. However, it is important to know that you have a limited period of time in which you are eligible to file for compensation. Failure to talk to a lawyer immediately could bar you from ever being able to file a claim.
