Dog owners have a legal responsibility to protect others from their dogs, either by proper fencing or the use of a leash. When they fail to control their animals and a person is injured, the dog owner may be held responsible for the injuries. This is done by filing a personal injury claim. Our Los Angeles dog bite lawyers can help you with the claims process.
Dog bites can cause severe injuries, such as:
- Permanent scarring
- Loss of limbs
- Nerve damage
- Emotional trauma
Dog bites may require medical treatment, prescription medications, and result in other economic and non-economic damages. We can help you obtain fair compensation to cover the costs related to your accident. Our attorneys are here for you during your time of stress to help you find significant financial relief for you and your family.
Holding Dog Owners Responsible
California is a strict liability state for dog bites. This means the dog’s owner is responsible for any injuries caused by their animal biting a person. However, your case must meet the requirements of the law, and you must show that you were injured by the dog and that your case meets the requirements of California law.
For a successful claim, you must prove that:
- The defendant is the owner of the animal
- You were bitten by the defendant’s dog
- The incident occurred on public property or private property that you were legally on
Our injury lawyers have four decades of collective experience, and our firm has represented numerous victims of dog bites. We are prepared to take your case to court, if the dog owner’s insurance company fails to offer a fair settlement for your damages.
