According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 350,000 victims of dog attacks and bites are seen in hospital emergency rooms every year. It is estimated that a total of 4.5 million dog bites occur annually and appear to be on the increase.

Any dog, regardless of breed type or size, can cause serious injuries with their bite. Unfortunately, most dog bites are due to some form of neglect on the part of its owner and are generally preventable. Laws regarding dog bites may vary between municipalities but many communities throughout California enforce those that hold the dog owner responsible for injuries inflicted by their dog. This liability is often found regardless of the owner’s knowledge of the dog’s aggressiveness.
