If you have been injured by a dog bite, you may be able to collect compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and property damage. You may also be eligible to collect punitive damages if the dog owner has been found responsible for prior dog bites, or if the dog owner’s behavior was outrageous in any way.

The dog bite caused your injuries
In California, the owner of a dog that bites another person will be held strictly liable for the injured party’s damages. In other words, if you are injured by a dog bite, the dog’s owner is automatically responsible for your injuries.
The general liability provision of the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance typically covers dog bites, unless the dog breed has been specifically excluded from the policy. Breeds excluded from homeowners insurance policies tend have aggressive tendencies. Regardless of your situation, we can help you receive compensation for your injuries.
Dogs are beloved animals and are treated like family in millions of Californian homes, but sometimes dogs can become agitated and exhibit aggressive behavior. Under some circumstances, dogs may even bite.

Thanks for all of your help and dedication. It was apparent to me that you were always on the ball. I really appreciated that, knowing that this was such a small case. I will definitely be in contact with you for any other legal matters I may have.
Thank you for your wonderful service and being nice and kind. You were very helpful in everything you did for me, and my family.
Tony was the best ever. He was responsive and would answer any questions I had right away. I have had experiences with lawyers who would act like you were bothering them when you had questions. He made me feel like he was treating my case like it was his most important case. Not one complaint and I tell anyone who asks if I know an Attorney about Tony. Thank you again.
