Palm Springs Dog Bites Lawyer

Even though dogs are known as man's best friend, they can be very dangerous animals. When a dog is not trained or is particularly aggressive, they may be prone to attack people. Dog bite attacks can cause serious injuries. If you or a relative has been attacked by a dog, you should speak with an experienced Palm Springs attorney regarding your rights. By holding the dog owner responsible for the dog's actions, you are not only asserting your rights as a victim, but also potentially preventing this from happening to other people in the future.

Owner Liability for Dog Bites in California

Dog owners in California are responsible for the behavior of their dogs. Even if the dog hasn't bitten or attacked someone before, the owner is still liable for the damages and injuries caused by the dog. The Liljegren Law Group builds strong cases for clients by performing an investigation that entails:

  • identifying the dog that attacked the client
  • finding out the identity of the dog owner
  • proving the injuries the client sustained were due to the actual dog bites

We are also able to use our litigation experience and knowledge of dog bite laws to fight against any possible defenses raised by the other party.

Dog Owner Acts that can Lead to Dog Bites

Dogs are more susceptible to biting people when they are not properly cared for and not restrained by their owners. It is the responsibility of the dog owner to make sure their dog does not pose a threat or danger to neighbors and pedestrians. Irresponsible behavior of the dog owner includes:

  • Not tying the dog to a leash
  • Not properly restraining a dog with a known history of aggressive behavior
  • Failure to provide adequate care, attention, and training to the dog
  • Inability to keep the dog within the confines of the owner's property
