Getting bitten or attacked by a dog can be a very disturbing experience, especially when the victim is a young child. At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we represent people who have been injured by a dog bite or attack in Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Oxnard. The state of California has a strict liability law when it comes to dog bites and animal attacks, meaning that dog owners are liable when their dog bites someone. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite or attack, a personal injury attorney can be very helpful as you seek damages for your injuries.
Some common injuries resulting from dog bites include:
Some dog bite victims undergo surgery, hospitalization, reconstructive surgery or plastic surgery for their injuries, which are all very costly. Not only do dog bite victims suffer from physical wounds inflicted by a dog bite, but they are also fairly psychologically damaged as well. Being attacked by a dog can have a very negative affect on a person and can turn a former dog lover into someone with a permanent distrust and dislike of dogs. An injury lawyer can help make sure that dog bite victims are compensated for all aspects of their injuries related to the attack regardless of their severity.
At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we know what it takes to effectively represent dog bite victims in personal injury claims and will do everything in our power to make sure the maximum amount of compensation is awarded. Our lawyers strive to provide clients with the high quality of representation they will need to win compensation for what they suffered after being bitten or attacked.
