YUBA COUNTY, California (June 13, 2017) — Victor Torres, 33, of Marysville, Don Jackson, 43, of Oroville, Kevin Hinman, 59, of Marysville and Cycellia Palmer, 33, were attacked and bitten by a male and female pit bull dogs on Tuesday, June 6,  in the town of Linda, according to a report by the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department.

The attacks took place about 6 p.m. when the two dogs encountered several people walking on Simpson Lane, just east of Marysville.

The Yuba County Sheriff’s Office stated in a news release that the female dog was the mother of 11 puppies and that both of the animals involved in the attack will be euthanized.

Palmer, one of the people bitten, is the owner of the female dog and Mandy Sanchez, 30, owned the male dog and both are thought to be transients.  The male dog had a prior bite recorded in Yuba County, officials said.

The Yuba County Animal Control managed to capture and detain the two dogs at the scene as well as take the 11 puppies into an animal care facility.

The animal control has investigated 103 dog bite complaints this year to date. Just one year ago, a 9-year-old boy was killed when he was mauled by three pit bull dogs in Yuba. Tyler Trammell-Huston was left alone with the animals by his older adult half-sister. The child was living with an Elk Grove family and was in the foster care system.

The owners of the dogs may voluntarily give up the animals to the county so they may be euthanized or be designated as “vicious” by a judge and then put down. They will be tested for rabies after they are euthanized.

Dog Bite Statistics

Roughly 4.5 million people are bitten by vicious dogs in the United States annually with 41 people killed in 2016 including 22 of the the fatalities from the Pit Bull breed. Roughly 78 million dogs are owned by people in the U.S. and one out of every 72 people is bitten by them.

If you were injured or have lost a loved one due to a vicious dog attack you have legal rights. The pain and suffering you have endured should not be in vain. The negligent owner of the animals that caused your pain, suffering and financial losses can be held accountable under strict California laws. A business that allows dogs on its premises may also be held liable for your injuries and losses.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
