Does Your Dog Bite Injury Justify Legal Action in California?

Being bitten by a dog can be painful but it can be a lot more than that. It can be a psychologically traumatizing experience and can lead to permanent scars and / or disfigurement. If you were bit by a dog that was not yours and the bite was not your fault, then we believe you should not be held accountable for medical costs and other economic and non-economic damages.

How to tell if your dog bite injury justifies legal action

It’s extremely common that a dog owner will go up to a dog bite victim after the accident and apologize for what happened. They’ll often say that they had no idea their dog would bite but the truth is that the law doesn’t care. Legally speaking, whether the dog was known to be dangerous or not, the owner is responsible for any injuries that dog puts someone through – as long as the bite was unprovoked. As you can see, the fact that the dog bit you is enough proof that the dog is capable of doing so.

Next, you want to determine if the wound is serious enough to warrant a personal injury lawsuit. If the wound is deep and you need scar reduction surgery, then it’s obvious that legal action may justified. On the other hand, if the wound only required a few stitches or none at all, then you may wonder if it’s worth it at all to contact a personal injury attorney.

The good news is that it’s not up to you to decide if the injury is serious enough to warrant a lawsuit. That’s what we’re here for. All it takes is one phone call to The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker. We can start with a free consultation during which we’ll use our knowledge of case law and outcomes to help you gain a better idea of the legal merit and value of your case. The goal is to ensure that you can make the most informed choice possible. Call us now at 800-333-0000 to get started.

You may be eligible for a variety of compensation types

If you have suffered from a dog bite then there are a variety of damages you may be eligible to receive compensation for. In fact, in a fair world you’d get compensation for each way the injury affected your life. This could include past medical bills, future estimated medical bills that relate to your dog bite, surgery required for scar reduction, the cost of therapy and counseling to heal from the trauma, loss of income, future loss of income, pain and suffering, and emotional pain and anguish.

Do not let the owner of the dog and their insurance company get by without giving you what you’re entitled to. At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we are here to help you through this process. Contact us at 800-333-0000 right away for a consultation.
