Did you know that dogs are the most common pets in California? According to one leading pet insurance provider, there are four times as many dogs registered across the state as there are cats, which come in as the second most popular pet. If you are interested in the statistics of pet ownership in California:
- San Diego has more insured pets than any other United States city
- The most common breed of dog in California is the mixed breed dog, with the top ten reading as follows:
- Mixed breed
- Labrador retriever
- Designer/hybrid breeds
- Golden retriever
- Yorkshire terrier
- German shepherd
- Shih Tzu
We know that your dog is one of your family, rather than simply a pet, but it is important for dog owners to remember that their four-legged friend is, in fact, an animal capable of inflicting horrific injuries on children and adults alike. While we are sure that you are, of course, a responsible dog owner, you cannot control the behavior of others. If you, your child, or another loved one, have been injured by somebody else’s canine, you could benefit from the expertise of a San Bernardino dog attack attorney from JML Law.
Proving Liability in a San Bernardino Dog Attack Lawsuit
Even when a dog has never displayed any signs of aggression prior to attacking you, its owner can be held liable for any injuries or damages resulting from the attack. However, you will not automatically be entitled to recover compensation and must prove that the owner was, in fact, responsible for the ordeal. When you hire a San Bernardino dog attack attorney from our firm, you can be certain that the full extent of our years of relevant experience will be harnessed into building the strongest possible case on your behalf, as we obtain evidence for all necessary factors, including:
- The identity and ownership of the dog in question
- Severity and type of injuries inflicted
- Negligence on the part of the dog’s owner, or the person whose care the dog was in at the time of the attack
Under California law, a dog owner is legally required to ensure that dogs are securely enclosed within their property while at home, and under control on a leash whilst in public places. If your injuries have arisen from these responsibilities being breached, you should consult with our expert San Bernardino dog attack attorneys immediately.
How Could a San Bernardino Dog Attack Attorney Help Me?
While you deal with the physical injuries and emotional anguish associated with becoming a dog attack victim, you are unlikely to be thinking clearly and, as such, fit to pursue the full amount of compensation due to you. An experienced attorney has the advantage of both their legal nous and an unbiased perspective on the circumstances involved in your accident.
