How We Can Help Secure Compensation For Your Dog Bite Attack

Our San Bernardino animal attack lawyers are deeply committed to assisting victims of dog bite attacks in securing the compensation they deserve. Here are some damages we can help you injury claim if you were attacked by a dog or experienced a dog bite. 

  • Medical Bills and Rehabilitation: Dog bites can result in significant medical expenses, from emergency treatment immediately following the incident to ongoing physical therapy or rehabilitation required for full recovery. Our team will work diligently to ensure that costs associated with healing are covered, relieving you of financial burdens so you can focus on getting better.
  • Pain and Suffering: Beyond physical injuries, we recognize the emotional toll a dog attack can take. We advocate for compensation that acknowledges not just immediate pain but also the long-term suffering you may experience due to your ordeal.
  • Disfigurement and Disability: In cases where an attack leads to permanent disfigurement, disability, or even amputation, our firm pursues claims that reflect both current and future impacts on your quality of life. This includes considerations for any necessary adaptations in living arrangements or employment circumstances due to injury-related limitations.
  • Emotional Recovery & PTSD: The psychological aftermath of a dog bite—such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety around animals, or other emotional distress—is taken seriously by our attorneys. Compensation sought will factor in needed mental health support services and general emotional recovery assistance.
  • Bites From Strays: Bites from strays introduce complexities, mostly in pinpointing a liable party for the attack. Unlike incidents involving owned pets, where responsibility clearly lies with the owner, stray dog attacks lack this direct accountability. However, this doesn’t mean victims are without recourse. In certain situations, local animal control agencies or municipal bodies could be held accountable if their negligence contributed to the incident.

Let our skilled personal injury attorneys help you after a dog bit you. Our specialized pit bull lawyers in San Bernardino can fight for the compensation you deserve when you have experienced a dog bite. 


Dog Bite Laws In California

While no breed is inherently dangerous, pit bulls have been subject to controversy due to a combination of factors, including media portrayal and statistical representation of dog bite incidents. This perception can influence public opinion and legal outcomes when determining liability in dog bite cases.

California law does not single out specific breeds; instead, it operates under a strict liability rule concerning dog bites. This means an owner cannot escape responsibility by claiming ignorance of their pet’s aggressiveness if it bites someone.

However, when dealing with potentially prejudiced views towards certain breeds like pit bulls during litigation or negotiations with insurance companies, our experienced team of San Bernardino pit bull lawyers’ strategies aim to focus on facts over fear.

Child Dog Bite Victims

In California, child dog bite cases are treated with particular sensitivity due to the vulnerable nature of young victims. The state’s strict liability laws apply regardless of the dog’s breed or previous behavior, meaning a dog owner is responsible if their pet bites a child, even if the dog has never shown aggression before.

This legal stance aims to protect children, who may not recognize potential dangers and cannot always defend themselves against an animal attack. 

Important First Steps After a Dog Bite or Attack

If you or a loved one has been bitten or attacked by a dog, taking the right steps immediately afterward can significantly impact your ability to secure compensation and ensure safety. Here are crucial actions to consider:

  • Identify the Dog’s Owner: Obtain the name and address of the dog’s owner as soon as possible. This information is vital for any legal action or insurance claim that may follow.
  • Limit Interaction with the Dog’s Owner: Owners might seek ways to deter you from contacting authorities or admitting fault, which could complicate future claims.
  • Seek Medical Attention Immediately: Follow all treatment advice for your dog bite injuries; healthcare professionals meticulously document everything related to your injury and its treatment.
  • Report The Incident To Authorities: Filing reports with both local police and animal control agencies promptly after an attack occurs ensures there is an official record detailing what happened.
  • Be Cautious When Dealing With Insurance Companies: Their early offers often fall short of covering the full spectrum of damages you’ve suffered, as insurers aim to settle claims for as little as possible. Furthermore, be mindful in your communications with insurance representatives; they are skilled at framing questions and interpreting responses in ways that could limit their financial responsibility.
  • Know Your Rights Concerning Service Dogs: If a service dog is involved in an attack, whether you’re its owner or not, different entitlements may apply—especially if the incident has compromised the animal’s ability to work. However, understanding these rights fully requires specific legal knowledge, making it essential to seek expert advice for clarification.

Consulting with attorneys who specialize in San Bernardino dog bite and animal attack cases is invaluable and can help you receive maximum compensation amounts. Specialized San Bernardino animal attack attorneys offer comprehensive guidance throughout the law process. 

Deadlines To File A Claim When Bitten By A Dog

 Individuals bitten by a dog have a specific timeframe within which they must file a claim to seek compensation for their injuries. This period is governed by the state’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, which stands at two years from the date of the incident.

Failing to initiate legal action within this window can result in losing the right to pursue damages altogether, regardless of the severity of your injuries or circumstances surrounding the bite. For assistance with this, speak with animal attack lawyers in San Bernardino as soon as possible.


What Can I Expect to Pay?

At Feher Law, we understand that dealing with the aftermath of an accident or injury can be financially taxing. That’s why we operate on a contingency fee basis, ensuring you face no upfront costs for our legal services. Under this model, our fees are directly tied to the successful outcome of your case—meaning we only get paid if you receive compensation.

This approach allows us to provide top-notch legal representation without adding to your financial burdens during a challenging time. It aligns our interests with yours; we’re motivated to secure the best possible settlement or verdict on your behalf because our payment depends on it.

Gathering Evidence

Collecting comprehensive evidence is essential for building a strong case and securing rightful compensation. Here’s what you should focus on gathering as soon as possible:

  • Police Documentation: Acquiring a copy of the police report filed at the scene provides an official account of the incident, which can be pivotal in establishing facts and liability.
  • Photo/Video Evidence: Visual documentation like photographs or videos capturing injuries sustained, location specifics (including any “Beware of Dog” signs), environmental conditions contributing to the incident (like broken fences), and images showing ownership details where applicable are invaluable.
  • Medical Records: From initial emergency care to follow-up visits, treatments received, and medications prescribed— keeping this documentation is key. These records not only demonstrate the extent of your injuries but also help quantify damages related to medical expenses.
  • Eyewitness Statements: Witnesses can offer unbiased accounts that corroborate your version of events. Collect names, contact information, and, if possible, written statements from anyone who saw the attack occur. 

We know that this is difficult to do after an incident, so let an experienced dog bite lawyer from our firm do all the hard work for you. Contact us today for more information.
