Negligent Dog Owners

Owner Liability in Dog Bite Claims - (818) 783-8446

There are times when a pet owner takes every necessary precaution to prevent their pets from harming themselves, other people, or other pets. Most owners will provide adequate food, water, exercise, and shelter for their pet and restrain or post signage warning people of the possible danger of getting near an aggressive dog. Unfortunately, while most pet owners take responsibility for their companions, there are times that owners act in sheer negligence.

Negligent pet owners can be a huge nuisance for neighborhoods, as wandering pets pose a threat to cars, leave messes on lawns and can act out of fear and potentially bite. Other times, owners take no responsibility for their pets, causing a danger to people and property.

If you were bit by a dog because of an owner's negligence, it is important you speak with a San Fernando Valley personal injury attorney right away.

It has been known that certain courts will deem owners of specific breeds (such as pit bulls) negligent if they do not take special precaution to prevent their pet from causing an injury. Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds and Dobermans have all been known to be considered prone to aggressive behavior. Pet Owners who do not provide adequate fencing or signage implying that a dog may be dangerous may be held liable for injuries. California also has a leash law, and owners who are in violation of the law when their pet attacks someone may be held liable as well.
