Have you been bitten by a dog or animal?

If you've ever been bitten or attacked by a dog you know that they are very powerful animals. A dog's jaw can exert up to or more than five hundred pounds of pressure whenever it bites down. This pressure combined with the sharp teeth of the dog can easily tear through muscle, skin and vital arteries and nerves. Anyone who is the victim of a dog bite attack can suffer very severe injuries, especially if the dog attacks their face or throat. Sadly, the most common victims of dog bite attacks are small children hoping to play with a dog, or who startle the dog by accident, causing it to attack. Other times an aggressive dog may simply know that the child will be unable to defend itself and will just attack the child without provocation. If you or your child has been injured in a dog bite attack, contact a San Diego personal injury attorney as soon as possible for legal assistance in receiving compensation from the dog owner or their insurance company.

Dog bite attacks are not only often vicious and physically very damaging, but they can also cause extreme psychological and emotional damage to the victim, possibly causing them to develop a crippling fear of animals for a very long time, or even for life. When a dog owner knows that their dog may attack someone, such as when a dog has already bitten someone, they will be automatically liable for any subsequent injuries obtained in an attack by the dog. Other liability laws apply, such as with negligence or if the dog attacks without any form of provocation.
