Dog Bite Injuries Attorneys
Injury Attorneys Serving San Fernando Valley, San Diego, San Gabriel Valley,
Dog owners are responsible if their dog attacks a person, even if that
dog had no prior tendency or history of aggression before. Unless the
dog was attacked or provoked, the dog owner will be required to pay for
injury that the dog bite has caused.
At Ardalan & Associates, PLC, we understand California law in regards
to dog bites and animal attacks and utilize this knowledge in helping
our clients obtain monetary compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
If you or your child has been attacked by a dog, a
personal injury attorney at our firm may be able to help. By working with the dog owner’s
homeowners insurance company and negotiating your settlement, your attorney
may be able to secure a much larger settlement than you would have been
able to obtain on your own. The insurance company may try to deny or delay
your claim, even though it is valid. But when you have an aggressive and
competent lawyer on your side, the insurance company will understand that
you are serious about getting the compensation that you need.
The Impact of Dog Attacks
A sad fact is that children are often the victim of dog attacks. Additionally,
more than half of the injuries sustained by children under 10 are bites
to the face. In the presence of this disheartening information, it is
no wonder that California law is strict when it comes to dog bites. A
dog owner has a responsibility to exercise reasonable caution when walking
their dog in public or when having visitors to their property. Even if
a dog has had no history of aggression or violence, when it attacks, the
dog owner is immediately liable (unless the dog was acting in self-defense.)
A dog bite can leave you with permanent scarring and disfigurement, not
to mention the risk of disease or infection and lasting emotional scars.
If you or your child has suffered from a dog attack, consulting an injury
lawyer at Ardalan & Associates, PLC is how you can protect yourself.
Your lawyer will fight to get the maximum settlement possible from the
insurance company, to pay for medical expenses, lost wages and emotional
pain and suffering.
Enlist Powerful Advocacy
By working with a professional, you have the opportunity to get a fair
settlement rather than getting denied or delayed by the insurance company
involved. By working quickly and consulting an attorney at our firm, we
can begin getting evidence and medical information together, along with
witness testimony, in order to prove the dog owner’s liability and
the extent of your injuries to the insurance company.
