Dog Manslaughter Attorney


[Content Updated Feb 7, 2021] – So what exactly is “manslaughter” by a dog? To many people, this would be a misnomer. After all, a dog does not even know how to read the Penal. Code. And those people would be correct. A dog is a chattel property like a gun.

Because of this, the only way a dog, like a gun, could harm a person is due to a person’s harmful conduct. Right? Well, hold on. While that may be true for a domesticated dog, a wild dog generally won’t pass on liability to a human. But in cases where a person owns a dog, wild animal, or not, the human may be obliged to pay the dog attack victim. 

If the dog kills someone, the survivors claim “wrongful death” (Defined here, and see also video explanation of negligent death law here).


Dog Attacks In Recent News (June 2003)

A pit bull killed Two-year-old Somer Clugston after a babysitter left her unattended. The babysitter pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. If a dog attacked you or a loved one, you need to contact help right away. Canine maulings can cause death or severe injuries such as cuts, lacerations, broken bones, facial trauma, and severe emotional damage. Victims will often need months of expensive medical treatment, and they may need surgery, plastic surgery, physical therapy, such as, and psychological counseling.

Attorneys can help you get the treatment for your injuries, no matter how severe. Remember, the domestic animal owner is usually liable to you regardless of where the attack occurred. Very few exceptions apply here.


Attacks Suffered by Children and Infants

The mauling of children and infants are especially heinous. Most times, the attacks occur in a home where the child may be a visitor. The animal owner is usually liable to you and your baby in cases of strikes, bites, and mauling, with liability attaching when chained or leashed dogs remain in enclosed yards.

The canine owner remains responsible for child injuries even if your minor was not supposed to be where the dog was isolated. Most parents are unaware of their rights in cases like these, so they must consult with our experienced, compassionate Orange County dog attack attorneys at once. Your case could worth thousands of dollars, with recent settlements reported by the news being far higher. For you to meet all your child’s legal and medical needs, you must hire an experienced dog mauling lawyer to win you cash for injuries, treatment, future medical expenses, psychological distress, and emotional problems.
