AFTER A DOG BITE

If you were attacked by a dog, there are a few steps you can take to protect your health and your ability to pursue maximum compensation for your injuries. Every case is different, so the following are meant to be a general guideline.

If you or someone you know was 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

CALIFORNIA DOG BITE LAWS

Because 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 established 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 strictly liable for the damages the dog caused.

DOG BITE INJURIES

Common injuries you can experience after a dog attack include puncture wounds, lacerations, contusions, infections, fractures, serious head and face injuries, and in some extreme cases, loss of limbs and permanent disfigurement. These kinds of attacks can also bring on negative mental and emotional effects. If you were injured, you deserve the chance to fight for damages that could include past and future medical treatment expenses, loss of past and future wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and possibly other damages, such as loss of consortium.

Our Santa Ana dog bite injury attorneys are here to help you develop a clear and compelling claim that presents evidence of your injuries, so we can pursue full compensation on your behalf.
