Dog Bites | Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie Blog
If you’re the kind of person who visits dog parks, Orange County has some of the best!
Here in Newport Beach, where our law office is located, we’re not too far away from the dog park at Avocado Avenue and San Miguel Drive, across from Civic Center Park. It’s just over 4 miles away – a 15-minute drive (12 on a good day). It has an lovely ocean view and plenty of parking.
Who doesn’t want to cuddle a puppy with a wagging tail or a toy dog held in its owner’s arms? In fact, for dog people, there is no canine alive that doesn’t get an “Awww!” But our law firm wants to remind you that you shouldn’t pet just any animal!
We’ve all seen cartoon depictions of mailmen being chased by angry dogs, but these cartoons reflect reality. Each year, than 3,000 U.S. Postal Service mail carriers are attacked by dogs. And postal workers aren’t the only ones at risk: delivery persons, newspaper carriers, utility workers, repairmen and landscapers are also at risk of on-the-job dog bites.
