Los Angeles Dog Bite Attorney

Have you suffered a dog bite attack in Los Angeles?

Serious dog bite attacks are a growing concern in America today. Of the millions of animal attacks in the United States each year, the overwhelming majority are occasioned by man's best friend. Visits by victims of dog bites to hospital emergency rooms now number over 1,000 per day. A child's small stature or an elderly person's lack of mobility make them the most vulnerable to attack. Severe injury, disfigurement, disease and even death can result from otherwise preventable attacks. If you or someone you love have suffered injury or died due to a dog attack in Los Angeles, you need to contact a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer who will stand up for your rights.

Los Angeles Dog Bite Lawyer

Los Angeles dog bite laws hold dog owners strictly liable for any injuries caused by their dog. This means the owners must effectively train and properly care for their dog in such a way that it presents no danger to others. If a dog has been trained to guard an owner's home or business, it is still the owner's responsibility to keep his dog confined and away from others so it is not a hazard. A dog owner is negligent by law when his pet has attacked and injured any person who is in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner's home.

Only three exceptions exempt a dog owner from liability:

  • When the dog bites a trespasser on the owner's property
  • When the dog is being treated by a veterinarian
  • When a person strikes or taunts the dog

Even though dogs are domesticated, like any other animal they can become aggressive and bite in certain situations. Their behavior can be unpredictable, especially when the victim is unfamiliar with a dog's nature or with dogs in general. Dog owners are fully responsible under law for any unprovoked bite attack whether the dog attacks out of fear, when protecting its owner or property or in any similar circumstance. If you have suffered a dog bite attack, The Lagstein Law Firm is dedicated to helping you recover the compensation you deserve, including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
