Pit Bull Dog Bite Injuries
Pit Bulls tend to get a bad rap, because for years people have used them for dog fighting and to protect their homes. Many Pit Bull dog owners encourage aggressive behavior, and they may react out of instinct if they see a child or neighbor walking by.
Remember: Many Pit Bulls are beloved and are trained well to be family pets. A dog’s breed doesn’t automatically determine whether the dog will be dangerous or not. The Pit Bull’s owner plays a large role in its dog’s personality. If the dog is encouraged to show aggressive behavior, it will likely be more territorial and could bite or injure others.
At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we love dogs, and we know that many families cherish their Pit Bulls. But, we also have seen dog bite victims struggle to pay piles of medical bills from attacks. They may have scars on their face or suffer panic attacks around dogs. Their lives have changed forever, and they deserve compensation for what they’ve been through.
If you, or someone you love, were bitten or attacked by a Pit Bull, contact Edgar Snyder & Associates today. You need someone on your side, protecting your legal rights and taking care of the hassles – so you can focus on recovering.
Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Owner Responsibilities
Pit Bulls, or what people commonly refer to as Pit Bulls, include American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Pit Bulls have gained a reputation for being aggressive, violent, and sometimes, even deadly. Statistics have specified Pit Bulls as a breed that has contributed to injuries in children and adults – including death.
Regardless of whether you believe Pit Bulls are dangerous or not, they have been targeted for breed-specific legislation. Many Pit Bull owners are denied coverage under their homeowner’s insurance policies, and some cities have even banned them altogether.
If you own a Pit Bull, or are thinking about getting one, do your homework. Check your state laws and local laws for any regulations you may need to follow. Always follow your state’s leash law, and understand that dog owners are generally responsible for any injuries their dog causes.
