If you are attacked by a dog in California, the owner may be liable for your injuries. It doesn’t matter if the dog was on a leash, tied up in a yard, or has bitten someone before. The owner could be fully responsible to cover your medical bills, lost wages during recovery, pain and suffering, and more. Unfortunately, dog bites often result in permanent scarring which can only be minimized by corrective plastic surgery. Also, many dog bite victims are young children, who suffer permanent disfigurement or lasting emotional issues from the attack.

Some dog bite victims are attacked while at work, such as delivery people, utility employees, home health care workers, maintenance workers, construction workers, and other individuals that may go onto a person’s property and are attacked by an aggressive dog. The dog can belong to a stranger, and other times the dog may be a good friend’s pet or could be a neighbor’s dog on the loose. Regardless, if you have been attacked, you need attorneys that have dealt with a variety of dog bite situations and know how to deal with the owners and their insurance company in order to get you compensated for your losses and pain & suffering.

Plus, if you are bitten by a dog while on the job, then you may also have a workers’ compensation claim; and both claims (a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim) can be brought concurrently. The lawyers at Pratt Williams, A Professional Law Corporation handle both areas of law and will strategize to get you the most compensation from each case.

If we cannot arrive at a satisfactory settlement that will cover your damages, we will not hesitate to take the case to court.

Even if the owner had a sign warning you of the animal, you may still have rights against the dog owner. Also, dogs are not the only types of animals that can attack people. If you have been attacked by a cat, a bird, or an exotic pet, you can also pursue compensation for damages. Our team will investigate your case and deal with the insurance company to negotiate a resolution. If we cannot arrive at a satisfactory settlement that will cover your damages, we will not hesitate to take the case to court.
