Dog Bite Injuries In San Diego
Dogs are a man’s best friend, but unfortunate events such as bites or attacks can occur without warning. San Diego County Animal Service reports 2,500 new cases of dog bites per year. A minor dog bite has the potential of causing long-term injuries that could cripple a family financially. Additionally, dog owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their dog is well trained and isn’t a hazard to the community. If a family pet bites or injuries an individual, the dog owner is held responsible for the injuries.
Please note, there are exceptions:
The victim was trespassing.
The victim was provoking or tormenting the dog.
The victim was a paid professional performing a service involving the dog – such as training the dog.
Regardless of the exceptions listed above, it’s recommended you seek legal assistance immediately if you’ve been a victim of a dog bite or attack in San Diego.
