Dog Bite Attacks in Los Angeles

By Pacific Attorney Group  Nov. 17, 2010 4:10p

The canine jaw is an extremely powerful predator tool. It can apply pressure that sometimes exceeds 500 PSI (pounds per square inch). Combined with the razor sharp teeth of a dog, a dog bite attack can have absolutely devastating effects on a person's body. Horrific injuries such as broken bones, mangled hands and limbs, a torn throat or even a severely damaged face can all result from a powerful and sudden dog attack. These attacks are often unprovoked and the injuries can have disastrous consequences on a person physically, emotionally and even financially. If you have been harmed by a dog bite attack there are legal options available to you, which a Los Angeles dog bite lawyer can help you understand.

Dogs can attack a person and cause these injuries for many reasons, whether due to aggression particular to that dog breed, predatory instincts, abuse by an owner or previous owner, desperation for food and even outright fear. Even if a person commits any intimidating or aggressive act towards a dog, it can still attack if it perceives, for whatever reason, that it's territory is being encroached upon, it's food is threatened, or it's life is in danger. Sadly, the most common victims of these types of attacks are small children who are easily injured, unable to defend themselves, and often maimed or killed in these types of attacks.
