At Stipp Law Firm, APC, we are dedicated to representing victims of dog bites in San Diego. Our team of experienced dog bite lawyers will provide you with a consultation to discuss your case. Although dogs are often viewed as beloved companions and guard our homes, they can act without warning and attack or bite. Biting is more common in certain breeds, such as Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and Akitas.
Dog bite injuries can be severe, causing disfigurement, scarring, emotional trauma, infections, broken bones, torn tendons, and even death. Unfortunately, children are more susceptible to dog bite injuries as they are often lower to the ground, may provoke dogs accidentally, and are less able to defend themselves. In some cases, a neighbor’s dog may even attack a child while they are playing.
If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, it is crucial to seek the help of an experienced dog bite lawyer. At Stipp Law Firm, APC, we understand the complexities of dog bite cases and will work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve.
In San Diego, dog bites are a serious issue that can lead to devastating consequences. Fortunately, California has strict laws in place to protect victims of dog attacks. Under the state’s strict liability law, dog owners are responsible for any injuries caused by their pets, even if they took precautions to prevent them. This means that businesses, corporations, and government entities can also be held accountable if their dogs bite someone.

In situations where the person responsible for the dog bite is not the owner, they can still be found liable if they were negligent. Property owners have a duty to ensure the safety of their guests and may be held responsible if they knew or should have known about the dog’s dangerous tendencies and failed to take reasonable measures to prevent harm.
Local laws and ordinances also play a role in protecting the public from dog bites. Leash laws require dog owners to keep their pets on a leash while in public, and violations of these laws can be used as evidence of negligence in a dog bite case.
If you have been the victim of a dog bite in San Diego, it is important to seek the help of an experienced dog bite lawyer. At Stipp Law Firm, APC, we have a team of skilled attorneys who can guide you through the legal process and help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
OTHER DOG RELATED INJURIES
At Stipp Law Firm, APC, we understand the devastating physical and emotional affect a dog bite can have on you and your loved ones. Along with bites, dogs can attack in an aggressive or even playful manner with negative impact. For instance, a dog can knock someone down when jumping. There are no “strict liability” laws for injuries aside from dog bites. Therefore, the burden falls on the victim to prove that the owner knew of the dog’s proclivity and failed to protect someone against his/her dog’s actions.
