At ANTN, we know how serious dog bites can be. Victims of dog bites suffer many different types of personal injuries, including some of the most devastating injuries as dog bites may cause scarring and negative effects that last a lifetime. Dog bites may also result in a gruesome and frightening experience that cause psychological injuries even more destructive than physical injuries.
Our dog bite attorneys help bite victims bring a lawsuit and recover damages, including past and future medical bills, past and future loss of income/wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and psychological trauma.
In California, owners of dogs are responsible for any injuries their dogs cause because California dog bite law imposes strict liability on the owners. This means, owners are responsible even if the owner of the dog had no reason to know that the dog had dangerous tendencies.
At ANTN, we represent dog bites victims all throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Orange, Ventura, and Kern counties. Animal bite victims can suffer from injuries ranging from scratches and cuts to punctures to the skin, permanent scars, and sometimes death. We are ready to represent you in your dog bite case regardless of the severity of your injuries or of the injuries of your loved ones.
There are several reasons why dogs bite people and sometimes determining the reason is not easy. Nevertheless, determining what should have been done by the owner to prevent the attack is much more important in dog bite cases. Our experienced attorneys with your help, will strategically plan your case, thoroughly investigate your claim, and make sure all the details are covered. Our attorneys have helped animal bite victims get the money they need to pay for all medical bills plus compensation to help them feel whole again as if the bite never happened.
WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ANIMAL BITE:
After suffering an animal bite, it is very important to seek immediate medical attention because not all pets have proper vaccinations. It is also important to document evidence that you may require later, which include:
- Name, phone number, address of the owner
- Picture of the owner’s identification card or driver’s license
- Name, phone number, address of all potential witnesses to the bite
- Insurance company and policy number of the owner’s home insurance, car insurance, or dog insurance
- Photographs of your injuries, the animal that caused your injuries, and the scene of the incident
It could also help you with your claim to journal everything that you remember from the incident in very specific detail, on the same day as the incident, to ensure that you do not forget the details later.
WHO PAYS AFTER A DOG BITE?
Often times, people hesitate to bring a claim against a dog owner to not cause financial hardship as a result. This happens when the dog owner is your neighbor, friend, or relative that you do not want to upset. Although the owner is the person responsible for your damages, there are other option that ANTN dog bite attorneys can help you realize. Depending on the circumstances of your dog bite case, your claim could be paid by homeowners’ insurance, car insurance, or animal insurance, and not by the owner of the animal.
