Whether it is a child or an adult who becomes a victim of a dog bite attack, this is a traumatic and overwhelming experience. Regardless of the breed type, a victim can always experience infections, injuries, preventative medical services, if the dog was not up to date on shots, and even permanent scarring. The scary news is that a dog attack can happen at anytime and anywhere, even in your own neighborhood with an animal who has never previously been aggressive towards you. Within seconds, a situation can go from concerning to devastating. If you've recently been involved in an attack, contact an experienced San Diego dog bite attorney today!
This is to say nothing of the emotional trauma that may also be associated with an attack. In just a couple of minutes with a dog who attacks you, your life or the life a child could be changed forever. No one really expects to be bitten by a dog, but an angry animal can be extremely quick and decisive in these situations, leaving you little opportunity to avoid being bit. You should never minimize the potential impact of a dog bite.
A dog bite can yield serious injuries even after you are initially treated. This situation can evolve into an infection if you minimize the extent of the injuries and don’t get medical help immediately. You need an experienced dog bite attorney at your side. Our award winning attorneys will help evaluate your individual claim to determine whether or not it is in your best interest to file a lawsuit against the dog owner to be compensated for your injuries. Since there are strict statutes of limitation about when you are eligible to file a suit, you need to speak to a San Diego dog bite attorney sooner rather than later so as to protect your rights and your ability to recover compensation in a lawsuit.
California's dog bite laws outline strict liability for an animal's owner. This means that the owner of that dog is responsible for any bite that that dog inflicts on another individual. You do not have to show that the dog was vicious or that there was a history of attacks or aggressive behavior on the part of the dog.
The simple fact that the dog bit the victim is enough to file a claim for compensation associated with the injuries that the dog inflicted. It also does not matter where the accident occurred. Whether you were in public or at the dog owner's home, the owner is always responsible for the behavior of his or her animal.
While it is certainly true that there are some breeds more likely to bite than others, you can be severely injured and bitten by any type of dog. Regardless of the circumstances of your dog bite injury, you need to consult with an attorney immediately. Hiring the right San Diego dog bite attorney can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Given that recovering from a dog bite is likely to be more complex and painful than you expect, you need someone who is advocating for your best interest in a legal case.
Sometimes the dog may be covered under the homeowner's insurance policy. If this is true, you are eligible to file a claim with the insurance company to receive compensation for your injuries. Our knowledgeable dog bite lawyers can help you with this claims process and ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance company. Our law firm initiates a claims process and works hard to navigate around any delays or push back on the part of the insurance company. If we are unable to resolve things with the insurance company, we will then aggressively pursue litigation on your behalf.
