Dog Bite Injury Lawyer in Pasadena

Help for Victims of Dog Bites & Animal Attacks

Every year in the United States 800,000 people seek medical attention for dog bites, and about half of these are children. Of those injured, 386,000 require treatment in an emergency department, and about a dozen will die from their injuries. The rate of dog bite-related injuries is highest for children ages 5 to 9 and a majority of those injured suffer dog bites in the head and neck regions.

Being bitten by a dog or animal can be a very traumatic experience for a person and can lead to a permanent fear of certain animals. Most often the types of people who get bitten are dog lovers, but a dog bite or attack can forever ruin their appreciation and love for this type of animal.

Dog bites may result on one or more of the following injuries:

  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Punctures
  • Tissue Loss
  • Crush Injuries
  • Sprain/Strain Injuries
  • Scars
  • Infections such as rabies & cellulitis

If you have suffered any of these injuries from a dog bite, regardless of severity, you should immediately speak with our personal injury team in Pasadena.

Know Your Rights Under California Law

California is a strict liability state, meaning that a dog owner is liable for injuries inflicted by their pet upon a human being, even if the owner was not negligent and the dog had never bitten anyone before. This statue was designed to prevent dogs from being hazardous to the community and to hold owners accountable for preventing their dogs from biting anyone.

If you or your child has been bitten by a dog or animal in Pasadena, our personal injury lawyers can help you take the proper legal actions against the owner.
