Animal Control Sweep Conducted After Fatal California Dog Attack

Last month, 65-year-old Emilio Rios was found dead in the front yard of his home as the result of a dog attack from two unattended pit bulls. Another woman in Rios’ neighborhood was also attacked by the dogs, but escaped with minor injuries after the dogs were scared away by the sirens of police officers who had been called to the scene after the initial attack.Recently, Riverside County animal control officers captured 29 dogs in a sweep of Rios’ former neighborhood looking for stray and potentially-dangerous dogs. “What we had happen earlier this month was just a horrific event,’’ said a spokesman for the Department. We really needed to show that community that we care.’’ Unless claimed by their owners, those dogs captured in the sweep will be put up for adoption, assuming they have temperaments that makes them safe to be in the community again.

California Dog Bite & Dog Attack Lawsuits

Although dogs are treasured members of many area families and great additions to all our local communities, rare and unfortunate incidents like the one which occurred last month display that these animals can also occasionally pose a risk to citizens in their everyday lives. When the unfortunate incident of a California dog bite or dog attack occurs, the consequences can be grave: puncture wounds, scarring, bites requiring surgery, bites resulting in amputation, rabies shots, injuries from being knocked down, and even loss of life.Those injured in a Sacramento CA dog attack may have legal recourse. Under California law, the owners of a dog which harms another person are liable for the financial damages the bite or attack causes. This is the case even if the owner has no knowledge or reason to believe the dog is aggressive or dangerous. Therefore unlike other states, this makes proving liability straight-forward in this type of cases in California.However, the reality of bringing any personal injury lawsuit contains significant hurdles, including fighting with the insurance companies to receive the financial compensation that you deserve.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
