According to APPA National Pet Owners Survey, at least 62% of U.S. households own pets and not all these pets are household pets like dogs, cats or birds. Some animal lovers forget the fact that not all animals can be domesticated and even the most domesticated ones like cats and dogs can also become wild and attack, depending on the propensity of the animals and their health or mental conditions. Some residents of California keep in their homes exotic animals like snakes, spiders, lizards, reptiles and giant cats. There are laws regulating and protecting wild animals and domesticated animals from harm and solitary enclosures. Also, there are laws that provide sanctions for animal owners in case of animal attacks to others. If you have been bitten, scratched, or otherwise attacked by domesticated or exotic animals, you should be aware that you have a right to seek damages against the animal owner, the pet shop owner and even those who are charged with the care of said animals. Even domestic animals can carry disease and your bite injuries or wounds can easily get infected, resulting in more serious treatments and can put you in grave danger. Hence, in these cases, you need to seek legal advice immediately from the best OC animal attack lawyer near you who you can trust to pursue your claims against the party at fault.
There are different laws governing dog and animal attacks depending on the state you reside. In California, in cases of dog bites alone, the state imposes strict liability on dog bite owners. California Civil Code § 3342 provides, in part, that: a.) The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner's knowledge of such viciousness. Therefore, if you have been attacked by a dog and you suffered injuries as a result, you have a claim against the owner for damages regardless if he has knowledge of the propensity of his dog to attack people. As you can see, especially in wild animal attacks, the laws could be very complex and the insurance company and/or defence lawyers of the negligent owners of these pets or exotic animals will definitely do everything to protect their client from liability. Hence, in order to at least level the playing field, you should immediately seek legal advice from top animal attack attorney who has vast experience in going against pet owners and their insurance carriers in order to provide you with the highest claim you deserve for all your injuries, pain and suffering and other losses.
Being attacked by animals can be very painful. Aside from this, the victim can suffer debilitating injuries and, not to mention, ugly scar marks that will forever remind the victim of how he or she came close to being eaten alive or killed by wild or exotic animals. The behaviours of animals can never be truly determined, especially in cases of exotic and wild animals. Hence, the animal owners should be very vigilant in making sure that they keep their animals in places and under conditions that will prevent them from attacking or harming people. In case of animal attacks, a victim will definitely suffer injuries that would require serious treatments from undergoing x-rays, CT scan and MRI to obtaining chiropractic treatments, orthopaedic evaluations, pain management consult and even undergoing surgeries for serious injuries. There are even some victims who suffer wrongful death after being attacked by exotic and even domestic animals. Treatments like the foregoing can reach up to hundreds of thousands and even millions and these financial burdens should not be borne by you and your family.
