San Jose Dog Bite Lawyer

Your Rights After a Dog Bite Attack

Every year, innocent people are attacked by dogs. Dogs on the loose attack strangers and sometimes a dog on a leash will attack someone who the dog already knows. Regardless of the scenario, everyone has rights – and that includes not being a victim to dog attacks. If you or someone you know has been attacked by a dog, it is your right to get a personal injury lawyer.

Lawsuits are not uncommon for dog attacks. They can teach the owner of the dog responsibility and hold them responsible for the actions of the dog. Being bitten by a dog can be a very scary scenario – one that can cause a lot of trauma for many years to come.

After-Effects of a Dog Attack

Dog attacks can cause a great deal of physical damage, as well as emotional and financial damages.

Being bitten by a dog can lead to:

  • Rabies
  • Scarring
  • Infections
  • Disfigurement

Dog Bite Victims May Experience:

  • Being nervous near dogs
  • Fear of going outside
  • Emotional trauma
  • Physical pain & suffering

Victims' Rights

It isn't right that you have to pay medical bills and deal with emotional trauma because a dog attacked you. There have been many cases where people have been able to get financial compensation for their medical bills and suffering because a dog owner could not control their pet. Compensation may include the costs of medical treatment, therapy expenses, lost work wages, as well as pain and suffering, among other damages.

A recent survey showed that there are over 4 million dog bite attacks every year. While most of them are not fatal, the amount of attacks is alarming. Additionally, about half of the dog bites are to children and half of those are in the face, often leaving children disfigured and scarred for life. Asserting your rights and holding a dog owner accountable may also help prevent similar attacks from happening in the future.

Our San Jose dog bite attorneys help victims understand California dog bite laws, exercise their rights, and get compensation for their injuries.
