According to Attorneys.com there are approximately 4.7 million dog bites per year. If you have received a dog bite injury, you may be able to receive compensation from the owner of the dog or their insurance company.
Even if the dog has never previously bitten someone, the dog owner (and insurance company) is usually responsible to pay damages suffered by the injured person. Dog Bite laws in California are referred to as “Strict Liability” laws. This means that the owner of the dog is almost always responsible for the injuries their dog(s) causes.
Dog bites left untreated, or not properly treated, can result in serious infections, and, of course, scarring that months later develop keloid or hyper/hypopigmentation, which can require expensive surgery or treatment to revise. Early assessment by a personal injury lawyer is essential, because insurance companies will take advantage of the injured person who is not trained in such injuries. If assessment of the need for future treatment is not done by an expert lawyer, the insurance company will not pay the full amount due.
