Pit Bull Attacks

Long Beach Dog Bite Lawyer

The Pit bull is on the list of one of the top 10 most aggressive doges in the U.S.  The Pit Bull and the Rottweiler are responsible for 77% of fatal dog attacks.  These dogs were originally bred to bait bulls, fight bears and do pit fighting, therefore, they are very powerful and aggressive dogs.  The pit bull does tend to act in an aggressive manner, and it has been bred into the breed.

In a recent 6 month period a report from dogbite.org showed:

  • There were 318 pit bull attacks reported
  • 388 people were bit in these attacks
  • 64% of the victims received severe injuries
  • 4% had one or more body parts torn off
  • 2% of the victims died as a result of their injuries

The age group suffering the most severe injuries was from 0 to 11 years old.  The report also stated that 68% of the pit bull that attacked someone was not on the owner's property, and that pit bulls escape from the property of their owner and bite people more often than any other breed of dog.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous pit bull, it is imperative that a seasoned Long Beach dog bite lawyer be consulted as soon as possible to discuss your injuries. 

Why You Should Bring a Lawsuit If You Have Been Attacked By a Pit Bull

Bringing a lawsuit against the negligent dog owner of the dog that bit you or a family member sends a clear message to that individual that they must be responsible for their actions and the actions of their dog.  Lawsuits of this nature can also make insurance companies ensure that those they insure are accountable and responsible pet owners.  Thirdly, they are a way to obtain needed compensation for your injuries, including:  medical bills, future medical bills, loss of income, disfigurement, pain and suffering, counseling to deal with the emotional issues of the attack. The Law Office of Leonard Matsuk can help you pursue this compensation.
