An animal attack can lead to serious injuries for the victim. Although the most prevalent types of attacks and bites are by dogs, there are thousands of people who are injured by other types of animals each year. Under California law, an owner of may be liable for any injuries caused by their pets.

The immediate steps you take after an animal attack or bite can significantly affect both your health and your legal rights. One of the most important steps to take is to seek immediate medical attention. If you do not receive treatment, your wounds can become infected. This could cause a serious injury, or even death in rare cases. It is also important to obtain the contact information for the owner of the animal that attacked you. Without knowing who owns the dog, you may not have legal recourse for your injuries.
Contacting an attorney who specifically handles animal attacks should also be on your immediate “to do” list. The legal team at the Nourmand Law Firm has the resources and experience to hold the negligent owners responsible for the injuries their animal has caused you and your loved ones.Owner Responsibility for Animal Bites
To determine who is responsible for the injuries you suffered, you first must know who the owner is. Many states, including California, have ‘strict liability’ for animal owners who hurt others. Under this legal theory, the owner is liable for the bite, no matter if the owner did anything wrong regarding protecting people from an attack.

- Animal keepers
- Parents of minors
