Unleashed Dog Attacks in Santa Clara County, California
Personal Injury 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 all potentially dangerous dogs or pets, regardless of an animals history as being vicious. When an owner fails to properly restrain an animal with a leash, fence or other precautionary method, it is possible that the animal can cause serious dog bite injury to another person.
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 within certain rules. However, when a dog owner fails to control a dog in the dog park or fails to follow California leash laws outside of dog parks, serious injuries can occur to other people.
Under California leash laws, owners of dogs can be held financially responsible for dog attacks or dog bite injuries that result from their negligence in keeping the dog restrained. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we handle dog bite cases that involve many issues, such as:
- People attacked by unleashed dogs outdoors
- People hurt by a dog that jumped a fence or otherwise escaped a fenced yard
- People injured by a dog that was not under control in a dog park
- Children injured or attacked by an unrestrained dog
- People who are injured by any other dangerous pet or animal
- People knocked down while walking or riding a bicycle
