Thousand Oaks Dog Bite Attorney

Seeking Damages after a Dog Attack

Dog attacks can be both physically dangerous and emotionally traumatic for the victim. Because dogs are a normal part of everyday life, it is easy to forget that they are predatory animals, capable of terrific violence when overcome by instinct. Anyone who owns a dog has strict liability for the actions of that dog, meaning that when dog bites occur, it is often possible to go to court for damages. Legal action is often necessary in order to cover the costly bills for medical treatment for wounds or even reconstructive surgery.

While most dog owners raise even-tempered animals that get along well with humans, some do not take the time and care to properly train and exercise the dog, leading to nervousness and aggression which can sometimes flare up against an innocent person. Other dog owners will even purposefully develop hostile behavior in order to groom the animal into being a guard dog.

Provided that you were not trespassing on the owner's property and that you did not provoke the attack by harassing or threatening the dog, you may be able to sue for compensation. A Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney can meet with you to discuss the case and help you decide whether to pursue legal action.
