Man's best friend isn't always so friendly


Many people in California have household pets, and an overwhelming favorite in many homes is a dog. In fact, more than half of all households in the U.S. have a pet, totaling over 80 million homes across the nation. Though most people could never imagine their beloved dog ever attacking or biting a person, such incidents can and do happen. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have studied this common problem and concluded that some 4.5 million people are bitten by a dog every year.

When a dangerous dog attacks, who is responsible?


Imagine for a moment you are playing with your children at a public park or green space, when out of nowhere a vicious dog begins attacking yourself or your children. Such shocking and violent attacks have happened far too often in California, leaving adults and children with serious physical and emotional scars that can last a lifetime. The California Legislature has specifically recognized the serious problem these dangerous animal attacks pose to the public, and as such, they have gone to great lengths to establish a system of laws and regulations which attempt to curb the danger, but also adequately penalize those whose pet animals cause injury or death to others.

Hit and run disrupts funeral procession


People in San Diego may have heard about an unusual accident that occurred in the Mountain View area earlier this month, when a driver struck a man who was directing a funeral procession, causing him serious injuries.

What if multiple parties are at fault in a CA car accident?


When it comes to assessing fault and liability for accidents and injuries in California, there are a few concepts that people should be aware of when deciding about whether to file a civil lawsuit. California's civil tort laws hold that a person is responsible whenever they act negligently, or fail to act if they owe a duty of care to someone, but their duty to compensate the victim is limited to the amount of fault they are responsible for.

Hosts who allow underage drinking may be held liable


People in San Diego know that the law can be pretty unforgiving when it comes to drunk driving, especially when those drivers cause property damage or even injure or kill another person. In addition to strict criminal penalties for DUI, drunk drivers who harm another person are open to tremendous civil liability. With the help of an experienced California personal injury attorney, car accident victims may be able to obtain significant monetary damages for their losses. But this civil and criminal liability doesn't always stop with just the driver; it may extend to the person who allowed him or her to drink in the first place.

Do owners of dangerous dogs face more liability?


People in California know that dog bites are a fairly common problem in many parts of the state, as people in all types of neighborhoods often possess pets that have the propensity for violent or aggressive behavior. Some are trained attack dogs, some are dogs who are bred for violence and some are otherwise well-mannered pets who react unfortunately to stressful situations or people. Regardless of the type of dog, any owner of a dog who bites or otherwise inflicts injury on another person is probably going to be held liable for the damage the dog causes, unless the victim is trespassing on private property when the attack occurred.

Owners are responsible for dog bite injuries on their property


Dogs can be a wonderful companions, protectors, and lifelong friends, but unfortunately in the hands of an irresponsible owner, a dog can also be a deadly menace. That is why California has laws specifically geared toward imposing liability upon dog owners when those dogs bite another person under certain circumstances.
