Dog Bites In San Diego Continue To Increase

Injuries resulting from a dog bite seem to be on the rise in San Diego, according to U.S. Politics Today, citing a study in the area.  The San Diego County Department of Animal Services reported a 10 percent increase in dog bites since last year.

According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, the Department of Animal Services received nearly 2,700 reports of dog attacks last year—which is an average of seven bites per day.  The number of incidents increased for the fourth year in a row.

Under California law, dog owners are usually liable when their pets attack other people, even if the animal does not have a history of violence. If a dog bites you, seek medical attention immediately and contact an attorney, especially for serious injuries
