Fortunately there aren’t that many serious dog bite injuries. Dogs though can cause major injuries; besides scarring, nerve and muscle tissue can be irreparably destroyed. The terror of being attacked can also result in life-long anxiety when being around dogs.
In Placer County, dogs are required to be leashed or crated when off their owner’s property. Under California law, a dog owner is responsible for any injury their dog causes by biting. Not just bites, but being knocked over by a loose dog can cause injury as well.
