FRESNO: Woman Critically Injured in Pit Bull Dog Attack in Alley Behind McKenzie Avenue

Fresno woman attacked by pit bullsFRESNO, California (April 6, 2016) — A woman believed to be in her 50s was critically injured Tuesday morning when she was attacked by two pit bull dogs in a downtown alley behind a home in the 2800 block of East McKenzie Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The woman was listed in grave condition following the early morning attack near the Highway 41 off ramp at Divisadero Street.

The injured woman is thought to be a transient who was walking in the alley. The dogs apparently were in a fenced yard, but managed to escape through a gate or climbing over a chair, police said. Police were called to the scene after the dogs’ owner heard them making noises in the alley and went outside to call them into the yard. When the owner realized there was a person being attacked she asked a neighbor to call 911.

The vicious dogs bit the woman all over her body. She was taken by paramedics to Community Regional Medical Center where she was provided an emergency blood transfusion. Her hands were so severely mauled by the dogs that police were unable to identify her using a fingerprint reader. Her identity is unknown at this time.

The dogs were seized from the home where they were kept and two of them will be euthanized. Two other dogs at the scene are under evaluation.

The dogs’ owner may face both criminal and civil charges for the attack.

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. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
