Dog Bites | Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie Blog
The word “negligence” comes up a lot in personal injury situations, and our experts Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie are here to shed some light about what this really means.
This Saturday is National Dog Day! We love a well-behaved pooch, but if a dog is aggressive and bites – California laws hold dog owners strictly liable.
Dog bites can be deadly, cause serious bodily injuries, and require immediate medical attention – especially for children.
The dog may not have intended to bite the victim, it may have resulted from playtime, or may have been due to dog owner neglect. Most people do not realize dog bite injuries are covered by the owner’s homeowners or renters insurance.
Our experienced attorneys have helped many clients get the support they deserve.
Regardless of the situation, if you are bitten by a dog, we suggest you:
- Call local animal control
- Determine if the dog is current on rabies vaccinations
- Learn if the dog has a history of prior bites
Even if you aren't sure you have a case, give us a call at (888) 752-7474, or fill out our Free Case Review below.
