Dog Bite Injuries

Orange County Dog Bite Lawyers help dog bite victims and the parents of animal attack victims

California Dog Bite Lawyers - California Personal Injury Lawyers

Many of us are pet owners and have one or more dogs we joke are members of the family. According to The Humane Society of the United States, there are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs in the United States representing 39 percent of U.S. households own at least one dog. That means that:

  • 2 of every 5 homes have dog(s)
  • 60% of dog owners own 1 dog
  • 28% of dog owners own 2 dogs
  • 12% of dog owners own 3+ dogs

But not all dogs are your best friend

While dogs can be a source of joy, and provide us with happiness, they are still lesser-aware animals, and they can be prone to attack by nature or may strike viciously when frightened, cornered or startled. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4.5 million Americans are victims of dog bites each and every year —many of them innocent children .

Why would I hire a lawyer for a dog bite injury?

Are you aware that insurance adjustors regularly settle cases with dig bite victims or the parents of dog attack victims for 10 to 20 percent of the real value of your dog bite injury case? Insurance adjustors, by definition, training and their reward structure are simple NOT on your side. In fact, their job is to reduce the value of your case.

How can I find the money to pay a law firm to protect me?

With our “No Recovery – No Fees” approach to Personal Injury cases, we work for free unless or until we win your case. This is known as a contingency fee arrangement. If we accept your case, we will cover all of the case expenses that must be invested in order to build a strong and winnable case. These expenses usually include paying our skilled attorneys, covering the costs of our paralegals & staff, costs for obtaining client medical records, veterinary records for attacking animal, hiring a commercial photographer document the victim’s wounds, paying investigators to research the attacking dog’s history, hiring a dog bite experts if negotiations fail and a court case is necessary.

Interestingly, dog bite victims who attempt to negotiate their own settlement with an insurance adjustor will more often end up in a courtroom with a poor case. On the other hand, an experienced lawyer knows how to collect the evidence and then present the facts and evidence in such a way that let’s the insurance company have a peek at what a court trial might look like if they don’t come to an out-of-court settlement as they more clearly see the risk that a court trial might end up in a monster award (“those crazy juries….”).

What if the animal is owned by a neighbor or acquaintance?

It can be helpful to just explain to the animal’s owner that you have a lawyer that handles your insurance negotiations and will be handling this unfortunate incident with the owner’s insurance company. Remember too that the recovery money that we are seeking as compensation for you or your child’s injury and distress is from the dog owner’s insurance carrier, not from the dog owner directly.

Met with the attorneys to discuss my auto accident case. I was very impressed with their knowledge and expertise in injury cases. They signed me up that day, helped me get the treatment I needed, and settled my case for an amount much more greater than expected. I’m a customer for life.
