With every year that comes and goes, animals bite millions of people and dogs bite a large number of these individuals. Though some bites can be minimal, many victims suffer severe injuries that come with much emotional distress. Recovering from an animal or dog bite can be long and painful. For this reason, you need The CAPITAL Law Firm’s dog bite attorney on your side and working for you to ease the process!
If you have been injured by an animal or a dog in the State of California, the law may be on your side. You may be entitled to compensation for the cost of medical treatment, both present and future, along with your physical and emotional pain and suffering, and any income you lost due to the time you had to take off work because of your injuries.
In California, the owner of a dog can be held “strictly liable” liable for your injuries, whether in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s property. Even if the dog does not have any prior known attacks, or that the owner may not have knowledge of a dog’s viciousness, this is not a determinative factor. Under the California dog bite statute, a person can still be liable for damages even if they used ordinary care and were not negligent.
We are here with you every step of the way, to make sure we hold those responsible for the actions of their dog. The CAPITAL Law Firm’s animal and dog bite attorneys will make sure you receive experienced and fair representation at all times.
