Should I Get A Lawyer For My Dog Bite Injury?

Being the victim of a dog bite is a traumatic experience and one that many people share. Approximately 5 million people are bitten by dogs each year in the United States, and sadly, roughly half of those victims are innocent children. Most often, people are attacked by dogs they know, such as a neighbor’s dog or a family friend’s dog, although it’s also possible to suffer an attack from an unfamiliar dog. If you are the victim of a dog bite, you likely have mounting medical bills and months or years of recovery in front of you.

Shouldn’t someone pay for what happened? Having a Personal Injury Attorney on your side is, unfortunately, a reality to ensure you get what is right.

What Our Clients Are Saying

What Is California’s Dog Bite Law?

California’s dog bite law dictates that any dog owner is strictly liable for the losses suffered by a person who gets bitten by their dog. This applies whether the bite occurs in a public setting or while the victim is lawfully present on private property, including the owner’s property. Importantly, this liability stands regardless of the owner’s prior knowledge about the dog’s tendency for vicious behavior or any prior incidents involving the dog.

A dog bite or pet animal attack can leave lasting scars that are both visible and invisible. In California, the law holds dog owners accountable for the actions of their pets. If you sustained a dog bite injury in California, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and even emotional distress.

California’s “strict liability” framework starkly contrasts the “one-bite” rule that applies in many other states. Pet owners are held liable for their animals’ behavior, even with no prior indication of aggression.

California dog bite claims involving at-fault victims are also subject to the state’s “pure comparative negligence” rule. We will explore the details of your case to minimize the reduction of your compensation.

What to do if you’ve been injured:

  1. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Whether this is the police, an employer, a store employee, or a supervisor. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you can receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  2. Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information too.
  3. Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the dangerous condition.
  4. Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information you have about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, contact our experienced California Injury lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.
