Sacramento Dog Bite Attorney
Dog owners often have a blind spot related to their beloved companion. Despite evidence that their dog is dangerous, people will bring their pet around strangers because they do not believe it will attack. When dogs do attack, the results are terrible. Thousands of people every year, primarily children, suffer injuries or death after a dog attacks them. Hospital bills add up quickly and place financial strain on the victim. Aside from the financial repercussions, emotional trauma is common in the aftermath of a serious dog bite. To receive compensation for all damage stemming from a dog-related attack, a personal injury lawsuit is a wise strategy.
Just as dogs are fiercely loyal to their owners, owners frequently refuse to accept liability for their dog after it attacks someone. Our Sacramento injury attorneys fight passionately on behalf of our clients for years, waging a legal battle for a fair and just settlement. News organizations throughout Northern California have recognized us as a premier firm. When you are beginning a personal injury lawsuit, there is no substitute for an experienced legal team. In fact, the most important decision you will make is your choice of legal representation.
Most Dangerous Dog Breeds
Despite the varieties of dogs we keep as pets in the United States, not all breeds are equally likely to attack. Through diligent data analysis and record-keeping, we have identified certain types of dog that are most commonly involved in dog bite lawsuits. Although you may be entitled to a settlement stemming from an attack by any dog breed, if one of these especially dangerous breeds attacked you or a loved one, it is likely you are entitled to a settlement to cover your losses. The most common breeds involved in an attack are:
- Pit Bulls
- German Shepherds
While these breeds attack people the most often, this list is by no means exhaustive. If a dog bit or otherwise attacked you or a loved one, the most prudent next step is to contact an attorney.
