California Man Attacked on Dog Walk
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 76-year old man shot and killed his own dog after being
attacked in San Mateo County, California. Police reported that the attack happened
early afternoon when the owner was walking his large Mastiff dog when
it began attacking him. Allegedly the dog would not stop until the man
took matters into his own hands and shot the dog before authorities could
respond. Authorities reported that the mad was taken to a local hospital
for bites to his lower leg and is expected to recover. The officers reported
that the dog had previous reports of bites.
Thousands of people visit emergency rooms each year and millions of dollars
are being spent on dog bite injuries. Everyone should be wary of dogs
and their ability to attack. Even the smallest or sweetest dog can show
aggression so it is important to always pay attention to behavior. Never
leave any animal unattended with children or the elderly, as they may
not be strong enough to stop an attack. Dog bites and attacks may not
only injury the victim but can also require surgery, physical therapy
and return follow-ups for their injuries. This can become quite expensive
to the victim. However, the victim may be entitled to compensation if
they are attacked or bitten by a dog owned by another person. A personal
injury attorney can determine if you or your loved one has grounds to
pursue legal action for injuries caused by dog bites. These injuries can
be very costly to the victim and it is always important to discuss all
of your legal options after being attacked.
