The personal injury lawyers at Nehora Law Firm represent clients in California for dog bites and construction site accidents.
With regards to a dog bite accident, the owner is responsible for the actions of their pet. In particular, dog owners, because if their dog bites a person, they can face civil suits. Dog owners facing possible civil lawsuits should consider consulting an experienced dog bite lawyer at Nehora Law.
On their website – Nehoralaw.com it states that the attorneys specialize in dog bite injuries, and they can specify the applicable law for these cases.
However, it is not always the responsibility of the dog owner for their own dog’s actions. An example is if a dog bites a person and there is justifiable cause for the accident.
Instances such as if the victim was aware of the risk involved and that the dog has been previously known to bite and they decided to ignore the risk and take the chance. In that case, the owner might not be at fault.
For instance, provoking a dog, whether intentional or unintentional, means the dog can be expected to protect itself from harm. Thus, in this particular accident, the dog owner may not be at fault.
In other cases, the dog bites a victim that unintentionally provoked the dog, such as invading its personal space, food, or even stepping on its paw. The dog owner may not be at fault again due to the dog being provoked. The dog owner can still decide to take action to protect themselves and their dog from legal effects.
Also, there are precautions that dog owners can take such as using a muzzle on their dog in some instances, or by putting up warning signs or “beware of dog” signs outside your home. As well as locking the gate shows an effort to keep people out of danger. Therefore, the dog owner is protecting people from the chance of getting bit and an accident occurring.
With regards to construction site accidents, this industry is infamously known for its high rates of accidents involving workers of all sectors. These accidents can quickly occur from the result of work environments changing, especially the use of heavy equipment, machinery, and power tools, and severe site conditions that workers have to endure.
