San Francisco Dog Bite Attorney

Dogs can be very dangerous animals if they are not controlled and trained properly. The animals have very powerful jaws and a vicious dog attack can lead to permanent disfigurement and extensive medical treatments to address the injuries and infections that result from the attack. Dog owners are liable for their pets' behavior, and are responsible to protect the public from injury and attack. Even if the animal has not previously exhibited aggressive characteristics, an owner can be held accountable for their failure to keep their dog contained in the backyard or inside the house.

Owners are especially liable in cases involving children, as their ignorance and natural curiosity puts them in greater risk of danger. If a dog attacked you or a loved one, it is important that you retain the counsel of a knowledgeable injury lawyer immediately after receiving proper medical care. Facial injuries, neck injuries, torn muscles, and other serious injuries are common when a dangerous animal is not properly restrained or fenced.
