DO YOU HAVE A CASE?
Why do dogs attack in the first place?
- Runners, bikers, and pedestrians are attacked because their movement triggers the predatory instinct of the animal. Naturally, many dogs will chase a figure that is in motion, but it is because of human negligence that they did not learn appropriate behavior, which makes the owner liable for their actions.
What types of dog bite injuries do we seek compensation for?
- Cuts and Lacerations
- Crushing Wounds
- Fractured Bones
What are the California Dog Bite laws?
Since California is a “statutory strict liability state,” you do not have to prove negligence or fault to file a lawsuit and recover compensation. All that must be recognized is that you were bitten in a public place or lawfully in a private place. If you were not trespassing or provoking the dog, the owner is 100% liable for the damages the dog caused.
What do I do if I have been bitten by a dog?
- Seek medical care (even a minor bite could become infected)
- Try to figure out who owns the dog
- Identify the insurance coverage (this includes yours and the negligent party’s)
- File a complaint with animal control and law enforcement
- Preserve evidence (clothes, photos of your injuries, the attack location, etc.)
- Find witnesses and get their contact information
- Document your recovery (via medical reports, a personal journal, etc.)
Consult with a personal injury attorney so you are aware of all of your options and can ensure your best interests remain protected
What are the limitations for damages in California?
- For the most part, there is no real cap on compensatory damages following a personal injury claim. This means that courts are able to award any amount they feel is appropriate and reasonable.
