Injured in an Animal Attack? Seek Help from Experienced Lawyers

Most people enjoy dogs. But not all dogs are friendly, or under proper control. Every year, Southern Californians are attacked by dogs or injured when attempting to escape from an angry dog. Many are injured when they are knocked down by large, friendly dogs, that should have been better controlled.If you have been injured by a dog, or by any other animal owned by another party, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. You should obtain legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Dog Bite Laws In California

In our state, a dog owner bears “strict liability” if his or her dog injures another person. This rule can make it somewhat easier to win a dog bite case, though there are exceptions to the strict liability rule. For that reason, it is important to get the advice of an attorney experienced in dog attack cases.

When representing you, we will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case. We will learn how the dog attack happened, identify all possible sources of insurance compensation and work tenaciously to help you get everything you are entitled to receive. Depending on the circumstances of your case, this could include:

  • Emergency medical costs
  • Scar revision and cosmetic surgery
  • Psychological counseling
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other economic and non-economic losses
  • Punitive damages

If you were injured by the dog of a neighbor, friend or family member, that person’s insurance policy may provide a source of compensation. Your claim will not increase the dog owner’s insurance rates.
