Los Angeles Animal Attacks
When people think of animal attacks in Los Angeles, the thing that usually comes to mind is a vision of a dog striking, biting and causing injuries. Yet, there are numerous attacks every year in the state of California that are caused by animals other than dogs. Sadly, many cities do not have specific laws related to animal attacks, which can lead injured victims to feel as if they do not have options.
If you have suffered from an animal attack, it is important that you do not insinuate that you are without legal options as you may be able to file a personal injury claim. A claim may be filed if you can prove that the owner of the animal that attacked you was at fault and/or acted negligently. For example, if you were attacked by a domestic animal or pet that was not properly restrained by its owner, you may be allowed to take legal action. This is especially true in cases where animals' owners detected possible danger but not protect innocent parties from foreseeable harm.
Whether you were attacked by a wild animal owned by a neighbor or victimized by an animal while visiting a government facility, such as a zoo, the law is on your side when other people's negligence is involved.
