Despite California’s strict leash laws, residents of Inglewood and other cities continue to be attacked and injured by dogs who have not been properly secured, either at home or while out in public. Knowing a dog is no guarantee that you will not be attacked, as numerous dog bites are inflicted by an animal who is familiar to the victim. Aside from friend’s and relative’s homes, public parks are the scene for many Inglewood dog attacks.

Did you know that there are currently around 78 million pet dogs in the United States and that around 4.5 million dog attacks occur each year? Around 20% of those dog attack victims will require hospitalization as a direct result of the dog bites. Dog bites should never happen, and our attorneys are passionate about recovering the compensation you deserve following an attack.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog whose owner flouted California leash laws or failed to adequately secure their pet at home, a dog bite lawyer could hold the owner accountable for the consequences of their negligence.

The Facts about Inglewood Dog Attacks

Although you may be very comfortable with a dog and have spent long periods of time in their company with no previous issues, you could be bitten and injured by any dog, at any time. When your lawyer is investigating the circumstances leading up to your Inglewood dog attack, we will examine the scenario with a fine-toothed comb, to ensure that the dog’s owner cannot falsely claim that you antagonized the dog. We will also prove that the dog does indeed belong to that person.

While dogs may attack completely unprovoked, some of the scenarios in which they tend to bite can include:

  • Being frightened
  • Threats to the dog themselves, their owner, or their home
  • Sensing some form of danger
  • Being in pain
  • Physical attacks
  • The tendency towards aggression due to upbringing and previous experiences

There are numerous factors which may make liability difficult to prove following an Inglewood dog attack, including the following:

  • A lack of witnesses (and the dog owner claims you provoked or attacked the dog, which prompted it to defend itself and the owner);
  • The dog owner flees the scene and there is no way to trace him/her or the dog;
  • The dog owner denies he/she owns the aggressive dog in order to avoid responsibility for the actions of the dog.

When you hire an attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg to represent you, you can rest assured that you are entrusting your case to a lawyer who has your best interests at heart at all times.
