Humane Society Dog Bites

Los Angeles Dog Bite Lawyer

There are a variety of circumstances under which a humane society or an animal control officer may be held liable in a dog bite claim, and there are also situations in which a humane society employee may be able to file a claim for a dog bite he or she sustained on or off duty. If you have questions about a dog bite involving an animal control officer and whether a humane society may be held liable, an attorney at Pacific Attorney Group may be able to help.

Our law firm deals with all types of dog bite lawsuits and claims throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your claim. In addition to dealing with typical dog bite claims involving dog owners alone, we deal with cases involving the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and animal control officers.

Animal Control Officers and Dog Bites

Animal control officers may be at risk of injury on a day to day basis as they deal with various complaints involving dangerous animals. Although a Los Angeles animal control officer who sustains a dog bite will most likely be able to recover workers' compensation benefits for his or her injuries, he or she may also wish to consider the possibility of taking legal action against the dog owner. In California, dog owners are held strictly liable when their dogs attack and injure other people. Even owners of dogs with no prior history of violence may be held accountable. Unfortunately, when the humane society has to become involved, this is typically because of a complaint of mistreatment or an aggressive neighborhood dog.

For help with a dog bite claim involving possible humane society liability or an animal control officer, contact a Los Angeles dog bite attorney at our firm.
