As much as pet owners love their furry companions, they are required by California law to ensure that others are protected from any injury or harm that their pets may cause. Whether in their own home, someone else’s home, or on public property, dog owners are responsible for preventing attacks through proper training, socialization, and restraining when necessary.
From bite wounds to serious mauling, dog attacks can have devastating physical and psychological effects on victims, especially when these attacks happen to the most vulnerable people in our society: children and the elderly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites each year.
With experience and knowledge, we will manage your dog bite claim.
If you have been attacked by a pet belonging to a friend or acquaintance, we understand that you may be reluctant to take legal action. As many of these incidences are covered by a person’s homeowner’s insurance, damages would not come from the personal assets of the pet owner. Our knowledgeable legal team will guide you through the process of recovering the compensation that you deserve.
