What are Pit Bull Dogs & Why Are They So Dangerous?

Pit Bulls are a special breed of dogs that belong to a long bloodline family of dogs traditionally bred for guarding, protection and fighting (defending from others). These dogs are a very sturdy breed and they are generally found to be medium-sized, but very stocky in stature. Whenever you see one walk down a public side walk or other public area your attention is drawn to there sturdy and quick stature. Pit bull dogs have a well-earned reputation for being extremely fierce and tenacious.

Today’s breed of Pit Bulls descend from the European bull and bear-baiting canines that had within them a natural aggressiveness. Dog breeders from Europe spent centuries of selective breeding in order to transform or create this vicious and dangerous animal into what some people choose to have as a common household pet.  Any experienced dog breeder will tell you that it is nearly impossible to fully eliminate natural tendencies, and even the most docile and loving Pit Bull still has the instinctual potential to be a silent killer to anyone within the range of its extremely powerful jaws and neck muscles.

Why Do I Represent Those Injured by Pit Bulls?

Well, I had already been representing injured folks in San Diego California for other accidents, including other breed dog bites. I decided to take on these injuries because as a person who likes dogs, I feel there is a moral responsibility that comes to owning one of these breeds. Everyone needs to take responsibility for the control of their pets but there is a heightened duty of responsibility if you own a pit bull dog. The simple fact of the matter is their bite force and the “way” the bite is completely unique and probably one of the most ferocious. These dogs can rip your flesh by biting down at around 300 pounds per square inch and turning necks while clamping down much like you will see a crocodile do attacking its prey. There is nothing like it.

Therefore, by representing injured folks, I have unique insight into this unique breed that is important to argue to a claims adjuster or jury. Also, by specializing in dog bites with pit bulls I am in a position to update my website with new and useful information to the public so there is more awareness on the potential dangers with pit bulls. I even wrote and published one of the very few books written specifically for the dog bite injury victim in California.
