Seek out compensation after you're attacked by a dog

You probably love your pet, just like others do. That doesn't mean that it's okay for a pet to nip or bite another person. If you've been attacked by someone's pet, you know how dangerous a dog can be all too well. With so many in California, it's reported that the state has one of the highest numbers of dogs per capita in all of the United States, it's no wonder that there are reports of dangerous animals more commonly here.

The important thing to understand is that if you've been attacked, it's generally the owner's responsibility, and he will be liable for your injuries. It's an owner's responsibility to manage his dog's behavior and to ensure that other people won't be attacked or bitten when his dog is stressed or around others.

After a dog bite, you may have had to go through multiple rabies shots, surgeries for reconstruction or even had an amputation after infection set in. These are wounds that can leave you with life-long scars, all because someone didn't handle his or her dangerous pet properly.

You can file a lawsuit against someone who has allowed his or her pet to attack you. By filing a claim, you can seek compensation that will help you cover medical bills and the wages you've lost. You may also claim for pain and suffering and other related costs.
