Dog Bites FAQs
The first thing is to assess your dog bite or attack injuries, or visit a doctor as soon as possible if the injuries are severe. Because a dog bite or dog attack can cause both short- and long- term damage, it’s likely you are entitled to compensation. We urge you to contact our personal injury lawyers to help you pursue a settlement from the dog owner. Regardless of whether the bite or attack took place in a public space or lawfully in a private place, the owner of that dog is considered liable.
Our clients trust us to advise and guide them about whether to accept an injury settlement or not. It is best to speak to one of our personal injury lawyers who can inform you with knowledgeable and experienced insights. But, in any case, you should not settle until meeting with our team.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible so we can file your claim before the California statute of limitations expires. This statute sets how long you have to file a claim depending on the type and cause of your injury.
Even though you may not be at fault for the accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will not pay for your medical bills, nor your property damage, until they complete their own liability and damage evaluation. Until then, you must make payment on medical costs associated with your accident or, have your health insurance pay them while your case is underway. It’s important to make sure that all of your medical providers bill your health insurance.
