What are your options as a dog attack victim?

A dog attack is not a minor incident, despite the fact that insurance companies and the dog owners frequently dismiss these cases or downplay the severity of the injuries. If you are the victim of a dog bite or attack, you know how painful and traumatizing these events can be. You need a strong legal ally by your side, advocating for your rights as a victim.

A dog bite is more than physical; it can be extremely traumatizing, especially if the victim is a child. In California, the owners of a dog that attacks a person are liable for injuries and damages. If a dog attacked you or your child suffered a dog bite, you have the right to a full and fair recovery.

The serious aftermath of a dog bite

While any type of dog can inflict injuries on a person, some of the dogs commonly associated with dog attacks include Dalmatians, chows, German shepherds, Rottweilers and pit bulls. More than just a bite mark, the impact of a dog attack is real and serious. Victims of animal attacks often suffer the following:

  • Emotional trauma and distress
  • Deep lacerations
  • Infections
  • Fractures
  • Skin and tissue scarring

Any of these medical needs can be costly, and some dog bite victims may find that they need continued medical care long after the initial attack. Skin grafts, pain management and infection treatment may be required for an extended time, leaving that individual with medical bills and other issues that must be addressed.

The aftermath of a dog bite is complex and painful, but there are legal options available to you. This incident is not your fault, and you have the right to a full and fair recovery.

Fighting for the recovery you deserve

Whether you are a postal worker who was bitten while delivering mail, a jogger who was attacked while out exercising or a parent whose child was viciously bitten, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other losses.

With an experienced personal injury attorney by your side, your interests are protected as your advocate navigates the legal process on your behalf. An animal attack may have changed your life or that of your child, but it is possible to claim the recovery you need to begin to rebuild your life and move forward.
