San Diego is no different from the rest of the United States in that many people are dog lovers. Dogs are simply a part of our culture, and people are used to seeing them everywhere. Millions of dogs live in households across the United States, and thousands call San Diego home. Unfortunately, this can create the potential for incidents that lead to serious injuries. This is where San Diego Injury Law Center can help. Dog bites are a growing problem in San Diego, as more and more people attempt to integrate their dogs into their daily routines including taking their pets to restaurants and other public places. These actions increase the number of contacts that the animals have with unfamiliar people. When a dog is stressed or even naturally predisposed to aggression, people can get hurt and damages can be incurred.Another common belief with the issue of dog bites is that they only tend to occur at the dogs home, with the belief behind that myth being that the dog is protecting its territory. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Dog bites occur everywhere, and in reality, people are not as likely to file a claim for a dog bite if it occurs where the dog lives. Parks, streets, sidewalks, beaches and just about anywhere else could be a place where a dog bite could occur. While no one should cower in fear as soon as he or she encounters a dog, as this could actually increase the dogs stress level and raise the possibility of an attack, everyone needs to at least be aware of the fact that any dog can be a problem.
