Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
California Civil Code Section 3342 states: “The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner's knowledge of such viciousness." Our Law Firm offers legal assistance to victims who sustain physical injuries from a dog attack. Recoverable damages include medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering and property damage.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 4.7 million Americans unfortunately end up with dog bites every year. About 800,000 of them wind up with injuries that require serious medical attention. Dog bites may cause damage to tissue, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and even bones which may require stitches or surgery, prescription medication, and physical or even psychological therapy.
