If you or someone that you love has been bitten by a dog, your injury can range from scratches and bruises to lacerations that require stitches and permanent nerve damage. Depending on where the attack took place, you might also have injuries to your head, brain, back, neck, and other parts of your body. Dog bites in small children can be extremely dangerous to their small and still developing bodies. In extreme cases, dog attacks can result in wrongful death claims if the victim dies due to the attack.
In addition to physical injuries, dog bites can cause long-term mental and emotional trauma for people of all ages. This phycological damage can last for the entire lifetime of the victim, resulting in additional anxiety and other mental illnesses.
Whatever your injury, big or small, Walch Law knows how to work with the responsible party, their insurance, and law enforcement to make sure that you are able to maximize your compensation. We won’t quit until you have the financial recompense that you deserve.Liability in a Dog Attack
California has specific laws regarding domestic animals that attack other people. Typically, if a victim can establish that the attack (1) occurred on public property, or (2) that the victim had the permission of the owner to be on the private property at the time of the dog (or other animal) attack. This means that if you were at a public park and bitten by a dog, you can likely recover for your injury. Similarly, if you were invited to a neighbors home for an evening and were attacked by their pet, you can also likely recover for your injury.
Many states have laws that allow dogs one bite or attack before the victim can press charges. This is known as the “one bite” rule. California, however, does not adhere to this rule. Rather, dog owners can be held liable the first time their animal bites or attacks someone. This information is tracked by local law enforcement. If the dog that bit you has attacked other individuals in the past, it is likely that you can receive greater compensation for your attack that is meant to punish the dog owner for a repeated pattern of negligence.
Our lawyers at Walch Law are familiar with all of these processes and will do the hard work for you. We will contact local law enforcement and state public health records to find out if the dog that attacked you has attacked others as well. Our commitment is not only to get you the compensation you deserve, but to be a faithful ally throughout the whole process with transparent communication regarding what is going on and the status of your case.
