Beware of these dog bite defenses in Los Angeles County

In Los Angeles, dog bites are a serious legal matter. Even if a dog has never bitten anyone before, an owner may face charges after a dog bite altercation. If you recently experienced a dog bite, be sure that you understand the defenses the owner may use to dismiss your claim.

Who is responsible when a dog bites?

Every dog his its day, and there are more dogs out in summer along with their owners, walkers and trainers. It may feel like the streets of Los Angeles have completely gone to the dogs. And a bite victim may feel sick as a dog if he doesn't know who is liable if a dog goes too far.

More dog bites likely in summer

Lazy days spent at the lake, cool nights spent camping and lots of picnics and barbecues are wonderful experiences to enjoy during the summer. Then there's the heat, packed attractions and bugs -- experiences that aren't so wonderful during the summer. For some people, summer can also be the year they were bitten by a dog.

Things to know about California dog bite injuries

Dog attacks don't happen to everyone. Yet they are not uncommon. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that nearly 4.5 million people suffer dog bites in the U.S. every year. More than half of those attacks occur in the home where the dog lives and involve victims that are familiar to the animal. The nature of the wounds can range from minor (barely breaking the skin) to extremely serious. At the very least, a serious dog bite can leave scars. If an attack causes disfigurement, a long regimen of medical treatment might be called for. If infection sets in, a victim could die.
