How to Deal with a Dog Bite When it Happens in the City of Ontario

The City of Ontario is known for being family-friendly. The City has many parks and recreational areas where one is free to play, exercise and just have fun family outings. Many City of Ontario residents own dogs, and while most owners are responsible in keeping their pets contained, there are some negligent owners who do not. Unfortunately, dog bites in the City of Ontario are not uncommon. If you or a loved one has suffered a dog bite in the City of Ontario, it is important to understand that there are laws that could serve to protect you as the victim.

Ever-Changing Laws

Before beginning, it is worth noting that laws regarding dog bites are ever-changing. If you have suffered injuries because of a dog bite, it is important to seek the advice and support of a qualified attorney who has experience in the field of dog bites. An attorney with the right experience can guide you through what laws can affect you and what laws can protect your rights as a victim. Further, a knowledgeable attorney can also help you understand what your available legal options are and guide you through the process of filing a lawsuit against the dog owner, should you decide to do so.

The City of Ontario Holds Dog Owners Liable

The City of Ontario is under California strict liability rules and regulations when it comes to making pet owners responsible for the injuries caused by their dogs. For instance, when a victim makes the decision to file a lawsuit against the dog owner, the dog owner cannot make the claim that he or she did not know that the dog would be aggressive based on the dog’s history. Further, the dog owner cannot make the claim that he or she took the necessary precautions to avoid the dog injuring a person.

There are certain limitations to these laws, however. In the City of Ontario, the dog owner will be held strictly responsible if the following are shown to be true:
1. The alleged victim was in fact bitten by the dog, or
2. The bite occurred on the basis that the alleged victim was lawfully inside a private area or was otherwise in a public space.

Legally, any individual who was carrying out a lawful and legal duty is considered to be on a private property lawfully. A common example of this type of individual is a USPS employee who is delivering mail on a private property. Another important factor to consider is that an alleged victim cannot file a lawsuit against being bitten by a military service dog or police dog.

Obtain Legal Support

A dog owner could be held liable for the injuries a victim has sustained from being bitten or sometimes even attacked by his or her dog. Every case can present a different outcome, therefore, it is important to seek legal support in order to ensure that there is a high probability of obtaining financial compensation for the injuries.

I went from feeling like a basket case from all the stress to feeling calm and collected after talking to Justin. He is a phenomenal personal injury lawyer and is a truly calming and reassuring presence. This firm helped me in ways I can't even adequately put into words, other than to say Thank You, Justin, to you and your awesome team.

After an auto accident, I felt really nervous calling an attorney because I had never worked with one before. But from the first conversation I had with Jessica, I felt so at ease. Justin then called me and was so easy going and we had a nice conversation too. The entire staff took great care of me and I am very happy.

When I needed a lawyer following a car accident on the Interstate 15 Freeway in Rancho Cucamonga, Justin King, and his team were there for me. I appreciated how his entire staff always seemed happy to answer my questions and were so good about returning all my phone calls and emails. I could tell this firm has immense experience in helping people get their life back after an unfortunate car crash. I was so happy with the outcome of my case and the results Justin obtained from the insurance company on my behalf. I have recommended their office to all my family members and neighbors. I hope you never need to call them. But if you need the best car accident lawyers, I can vouch that they are excellent.
