Pursuing Compensation For Dog Bites In California

When someone owns a dog, he or she has a responsibility to control it and protect innocent people from harm. Even if the animal has never attacked before or shown any other signs of vicious behavior, it is not an excuse. The owner is generally still liable under California law.

At the Solano County law firm of Wells, Call, Clark, Bennett & Clawson, we are vigorous champions for those injured by dangerous pets throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. We have recovered more than $300 million for past clients in a wide array of personal injury cases.

Pursuing The Money Your Child Will Need In The Coming Years

Our attorneys have decades of experience representing the victims of dog bites and dog attacks. Often, these victims are little children. In addition to being emotionally traumatizing, the incident often results in severe physical injuries and disfigurement. A child’s face is often at the same level as a dog’s muzzle, offering ample opportunity for the animal’s teeth to do serious damage.

Our law firm will fight for the compensation your child needs now for medical care and psychological counseling, but we don’t stop there. We will also pursue the money he or she will need for any future reconstructive surgery. Sometimes doctors will recommend waiting until the child reaches a certain age before performing plastic surgery to remove the scars. That is why it’s so important to obtain the money now that your child will require down the road.

Are You Concerned About Suing Your Friend Or Neighbor?

When you file a dog bite injury claim, you are not requesting money from the dog’s owner but rather from his or her insurance company, for which your neighbor has been paying on his or her insurance policy. We will handle all the details, interacting with the insurance company to process the claim as quickly as possible. In most cases, we can negotiate a settlement, which means you wouldn’t even need to go to court.
