Dog Bites Archives

What steps should you take after a dog bite?

One factor that motivates many individuals to move to San Diego is the sun. It's the perfect type of weather for engaging in various physical activities including walking around your neighborhood. You have to be on the lookout for unrestrained dogs as you do this though. There are certain steps that you should take should you be bitten by a vicious canine while you're out and about walking in your neighborhood.

Dog bites are common cause of personal injuries

Well-trained and well-maintained dogs can make excellent pets for San Diego residents. Many families throughout the metropolitan area keep canines in their homes and count their four-legged friends as members of their households. While a dog can be an excellent companion and a close friend, it can also become a dangerous animal when it is not properly controlled by its owner.

California dog owners can face liability if their animal attacks

Dog lovers in California have many reasons to love these animals. Dogs can be loving, smart and playful creatures that bring joy to the lives of many. However, dogs are still animals and, therefore, even a seemingly friendly dog could still bite someone, causing serious injury or even death.

What breeds of dog pose the highest risk to children?

Owning a dog in southern California is common for residents. These animals make great companions, and for the most part, the public is comfortable encountering dogs in public places and when they enter private property. Although dogs, like other pets, can have a positive impact, there are some concerns. While dog owners are expected to keep others safe when they interact with their pet, this is not always feasible. And in some cases, the negligence of a dog owner is the cause of a serious dog bite or attack.

Facts and figures surrounding dog bites

A dog may be referred to as man's best friend; however, a dog is still an animal and is equipped with instincts. Even if a dog has never shown any signs of being aggressive or has bit anyone in the past, any dog, or animal for that matter, with teeth has the propensity to bite a person. Thus, it is important for dog owners to take action to reduce and even prevent such attacks or incidents. The failure to do so in the state of California, as well as other states, could result in penalties faced by the dog owner.
