California Animal Attack Lawyers

Americans are animal lovers. According to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association’s annual survey, more than 71.1 million homes in the United States include one or more pets. We own 88.3 million cats, 74.8 million dogs, 24.3 million small animals, 13.8 million horses, and 13.4 million reptiles. These figures do not include exotic animals, ranging from lions and tigers to monkeys and chimps.

With so many pets sharing our homes and neighborhoods, it is no wonder that animal attacks are so common.

Dog bites are by far the most common type of attack. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, about 4.7 million people are the victims of dog bites each year, most of them children. About a dozen people die of dog bite injuries annually.

For Immediate Consultation Call – (800) 644-8000

If you have been injured in any type of animal attack, you may have a right to recover financial compensation for the damages the animal caused. Contact The Reeves Law Group today. We offer a free initial consultation to animal attack victims.

Dogs are unpredictable. A pet that is submissive to its owner can be aggressive to others. Dogs that have never so much as growled at anyone can suddenly attack for no discernable reason. Children are at high risk because they spend more time playing with dogs. They are also more likely to provoke an attack, perhaps because they have less experience reading animal behavior.

Dog bite injuries typically involve deep bite wounds. Powerful jaws and teeth can crush bones. Bite victims may require several surgeries, including reconstructive surgery, to repair the damage. Infection is often a problem. A bite by an unvaccinated dog may put the victim at risk for rabies.

Animal Attacks

We can also assist victims of other types of animal attacks. Cat bites and scratches can lead to severe infection and leave lasting scars. A horse’s kick can cause serious trauma, including brain injury. Pet pythons and boa constrictors have been known to strangle their victims.

If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by any type of animal, please contact The Reeves Law Group at (800) 644-8000 for experienced representation and personal client service.

Vicious Breeds

The news is full of reports of people who have been mauled by vicious dogs. Any type of dog can be dangerous, but certain dogs are bred for aggressive tendencies. When these natural tendencies are combined with negligent owners, the results can be devastating.

Some insurance companies charge higher rates to homeowners who keep Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Doberman Pincers, Pit Bulls, wolf hybrids, and other breeds that they say are at high risk for causing injury to others. While all dog breeds are capable of injuring people, these dogs more often leave people seriously maimed or dead.
