Dog Bite Lawyer Serving Victims In Los Angeles

If you or your loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog, you are probably aware of how devastating the experience can be. We never expect to be attacked by a dog, especially if the dog has never demonstrated aggressive or violent behavior. Unfortunately, dog bites do happen frequently and unexpectedly in the state of California.

Understanding California's Dog Bite Laws

In the state of California, dog owners are held strictly liable for any injuries caused by their dogs. California law presumes that all pet owners must take necessary steps to ensure the safety of others. As a result, an owner can be held financially liable for any injuries that were caused on private or public property due to failure to prevent the incident.

Common injuries associated with dog bites and dog attacks include:

  • Bone fractures or broken bones
  • Damage to nerves, tendons, and muscles
  • Swelling and bleeding
  • Injuries associated with infections
  • Permanent scarring, disfigurement and cosmetic deformities
  • Emotional trauma, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder

We can pursue your maximum compensation to cover the costs of medical bills, medical care, rehabilitation care, cosmetic surgery, or psychological counseling. In addition to seeking your deserved compensation for your necessary medical care, we can pursue your damages for pain and suffering, loss of wages, or other costs that have altered your standard of living.
