Dog Bite Accidents


    Dog Bite statistics nationwide are alarming and very dangerous. Nearly 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs each year and 50% of children under 10 years old find these to be fatal. Fatal dog attacks usually occur very near the family home, possibly even a  next door neighbor. More than half of the fatalities from dog bites and dog attacks were inflicted by pit bulls and rottweiler dogs. Rottweiler Dogs statistically tend to be the most  fatal. Other dog breeds in California that are considered to be more likely to bite a person are German Shepherds, wolf hybrids, Chow Chows, and Akitas. In California nearly 2% of the population are nipped or bitten by dogs, either vicious dogs or merely undisciplined either do not matter in a dog bite case. Before your dog attack and/or serious dog bite, the chances are you never even thought about the California dog bite law or that there even was one. You never really had to. And Now you find yourself looking for a good California dog bite attorney to represent you or someone close to you, possibly a child who has suffered a dog bite or dog bites.

Dog bites and dog attacks are so unpredictable and incredibly dangerous. Law Offices of Richard G. Andrews can help you answer any questions about dog bites that you might have.

Dog Bite Law

  When you have a dog bite and file for a dog bite lawsuit your California dog bite lawyer only needs to prove that the victim (plaintiff) was lawfully on the premises of where the dog attack occurred and that the dog bite(s) caused injury to the victim(plaintiff). The defendant of the dog bite law suit who owned the dog is then strictly liable for all injuries and damages suffered by the plaintiff victim (plaintiff). Prior knowledge of whether it was a vicious dog or not, does not matter.
