California Dog Bite Lawyers

Vicious Dog Warning

Dangerous Dogs Bite

Dogs can be a great companion for an individual or a family. However, when a dog is out of control and bites someone, especially a child, it is an unacceptable situation. In the state of California, the dog owner is financial responsible for any damages to people or property caused by their dog. If the dog attacks a person– even without a history of violent behavior, the owner is strictly liable for all harm it causes. This applies to almost any situation that someone suffers an injury caused by a dog, on both public or private property. There are exceptions if caused by trespassing on the property of the owner, in the process of committing a crime, or by aggravating the dog on purpose. This allows the dog to fulfill its role as the protector of his family against vandals or burglars without the owner being subject to lawsuits. The Zev Weinstein Law Offices work with experienced trial attorneys in our fight against large corporations, including liability insurance companies to help a victim when they or a child is injured by a dog. We have collectively recovered millions for the victims of similar actions in verdicts or settlements and want to help make your life whole again.

Dangerous Animals Subject Owners to Additional Duties

When a person has a dog that has been classified as vicious or potentially dangerous by the state, they have to follow additional responsibilities to prevent severe injury or other issues. Dogs that have been classified so must be in an enclosure that will prohibit them from getting out and does not allow for children to enter. When not in this structure, they must be under the control of a responsible adult– and leashed and possibly muzzled. Cities can prohibit ownership of a vicious creature at anytime if they are aware of the animal not being properly restrained or if it could endanger the public. If you or a loved one have been involved in a canine attack, it is essential to contact a responsible attorney at once. Los Angeles dog bite attorneys such as Zev Weinstein will make sure that you are compensated for medical and emotional costs of the incident.
