More than 4.7 million people suffer from dog bite injuries annually in the United States. Roughly 800,000 of those bites require medical attention. Half of those victims requiring medical attention are children. The insurance industry pays over $1 billion every year in dog bite claims. 75% of dog bite incidents occur on the bite victim’s property—most dog bite victims know the dog.

Legal Responsibility for Dog Bites
In the event that a dog owner does not accept responsibility for the injuries that their dogs created, we can help. California law does not reduce the owner’s responsibility in a dog attack even if the animal was provoked. As a result, dog attack victims do not need to prove legal liability. One of our California dog bite attorneys can help you determine if you have a good case against the dog owner.
