Many times when a dog attacks, a serious injury can occur in the victim. At our Law Firm in Sacramento, our clients that have experienced a dog attack have suffered both physically and emotionally. As I was reading an article in the news today, I came across a woman who was attacked by a dog during her job. I can only imagine the stress that must bring. The attack occurred west of our Sacramento home, in Hayward, California. The woman was a postal worker and she was attacked by a pit bull on her mail run.
The news reports state that the woman, Virginia Joaquin, received injuries that required four hours worth of surgery on her right hand. Luckily, when attacked, Virginia (undoubtedly), began to scream and neighbors rushed to her rescue, beating the pit bull away with a piece of wood. She was lucky for the fast intervention of the people. Otherwise, the outcome might have been much more dramatic.
If you have been attacked by a dog, you should seek medical and legal help. In California, State law places a person responsible for a dog attack if a person’s negligence causes the attack to happen, a person keeps a dog knowing that it has been known to attack others, or if a person is violating a leash law. I don’t think there’s a need to provide a list of the consequences that may occur from a dog bite or attack…
