Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Accident Victims in Long Beach

Long Beach is a city in Los Angeles County situated some 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles with a total land area of 50.293 square miles. Its estimated population in the 2012 Census is 467,892 making it the seventh largest city in California. Its location on the Pacific Coast promotes its maritime industry as Long Beach is in fact a major maritime hub, housing one of the world’s largest shipping ports.

Popular attractions in Long Beach include the RMS Queen Mary, an ocean liner featuring a unique art deco design that is permanently docked at Long Beach, the Aquarium of the Pacific which showcases thousands of animals and gondola rides.

Another point of interest is “Rosie’s Dog Beach”, Los Angeles County’s only legal beach for dogs. Rosie’s Dog Beach is an off-leash area; however, dog owners still need to keep an eye on their dogs in order to prevent dog bite injuries.

Dog owner liability for dog bite injury

Dog bites and attacks can cause:

  • Lacerations
  • Punctures
  • Crush injuries
  • Infection
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Severe nerve damage
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Muscle tears and
  • Emotional trauma

Victims of dog attacks can claim compensation under the California Dog Bite Statute found in the California Civil Code. As a rule, a dog owner is liable for any injury inflicted by their dogs. The owner’s obligation to pay compensation for injuries sustained from a dog attack remains, even if the dog does not have a history of biting or vicious behavior.

Claiming compensation

A dog bite or dog attack victim may be compensated through the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance.
