Toddler Mauled by Grandmother’s Pit Bull Dog at Riverside Home on Fern Avenue

Toddler Mauled by Grandmother's Pitbull Dog at Riverside Home on Fern Avenue

Pit Bull Dog Attacks Toddler at Grandmother’s Home in Riverside

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (August 7, 2018) — An 18-month-old toddler was mauled by her grandmother’s pit bull dog at the woman’s home leaving the child with a serious face injury, according to CBS LA.

The incident took place on Friday at the grandmother’s home on Fern Avenue in Riverside. The dog viciously mauled the child’s face and possibly an eye. The injuries were not considered life threatening.

The 11-year-old dog, whose name is Petron, previously bit its owner’s other grandchild two years ago, according to Riverside County Animal Services.  Despite having a court hearing, the dog was permitted to stay at the woman’s home under certain conditions.  This time, however, the grandmother surrendered the dog and it was euthanized.

The case remains under investigation and the grandmother could face criminal charges.

Pit Bull Attack Investigation

At this time, police are investigating the attack in an effort to determine whether criminal charges should be filed.

We offer our heartfelt prayers to the child and all those affected by this. 

If a negligent dog owner has allowed their animals to attack or injure you or a loved one, there may be grounds for a personal injury claim. While this is always a personal decision, for many the financial losses associated with a such a traumatic event can be significant.

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.
