Unleashed Dog Attacks in Santa Clara County, California

Attorney for San Jose Victims of Dog Bites

Any dog can bite, even those that are seemingly tame. California leash laws were established to protect people from potentially dangerous dogs or pets, regardless of an animal's history of being vicious or behaving dangerously. When an owner fails to properly restrain an animal with a leash, fence, or other precautionary methods, the animal may cause serious injuries to another person in a bite or attack. If you were attacked by an unleashed dog, you may be entitled to compensation.

California Leash Laws

Dog parks throughout the Bay Area provide animals and their owners the opportunity to exercise without a leash, within specified areas, and while following certain rules. However, when a dog owner fails to control their animal in a dog park or fails to follow California leash laws outside of dog parks, other people may suffer serious injuries due to a dog's aggressive behavior.

Under California law, owners of dogs can be held financially responsible for dog attacks or dog bite injuries that result from their negligence in keeping their dogs restrained. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we handle dog bite cases that involve issues such as:

  • People attacked by unleashed dogs outdoors

  • People injured by dogs that were not under control in dog parks
