Dog Bites Require Immediate Medical Attention 

Dog bite victims require immediate medical attention. Almost always, a medical doctor will prescribe antibiotic medicine for any animal attack to prevent infection. Failure to get quick medical attention not only poses additional health risks, it may also adversely affect your case if you decide to file a lawsuit against the dog owner whose animal attacked you.

Children Bitten By Dogs Most Often | Strict Liability

Unfortunately, children are the most frequent dog bite victims, and often they are bitten in the face. This can mean huge medical bills, often including plastic or reconstructive surgery to prevent or repair severe disfigurement. Insurance companies in the United States will likely pay out well over $350 million to injured dog bite victims this year.

The legal rights of a dog bite or animal attack victim depend largely upon where, and under what circumstances, the attack occurred. In most cases, states make the owner responsible for all dog bites, even if the animal has not shown any previous aggression.

In California, any owner may be held liable for dog bites even if they were not negligent. This is called "strict liability.” But "strict liability" only applies to dog bites. It does not apply if the dog pushes over the victim, for example, and causes an injury. If there is no bite, you must prove negligence. Negligence may be proved by showing the owner violated a local leash law or maintained custody or control of the dog with knowledge that it was dangerous or previously aggressive toward people.
