Dog Bite

Nearly 2% of the American public is bitten by a dog every year. That’s millions of people every year and almost 800,000 of those are serious enough to require medical attention. Dog bites can result in serious scarring and deformity, even in death. The old law used to give the owner “one free bite.” Most states, including California, have replaced this ancient rule with modern dog bite statutes. An owner, as well as a keeper or harborer of a dog, may be liable not only for a dog’s bite, but also for other injuries caused by dogs. If you have been injured in a dog attack you may be entitled to the following: medical bills, wage loss, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, emotional distress and disfigurement.

There are important steps you must take to maximize the value of your dog bite/attack case:

  • Immediately learn the identity of the dog so that it can be determined whether you need rabies treatment. You also need to know the identity of the dog’s owner so that a claim can be made against them and their insurance company.
  • Obtain the name and telephone number of any and all witnesses.
  • Take photographs of the dog and your injuries. Also take photos of any torn or bloody clothing, and any blood on the ground.
  • Call for medical attention.
  • If you have been the victim of an animal attack, you should immediately report the incident to your local department of animal control.
