Dog Bites

The law requires pet owners to prevent their animals from hurting others. When this fails to occur, the proper parties need to be held accountable.

There is no "one free bite rule" in California.

People who own dogs and other animals are responsible for the harm from a dog bite, no matter how carefully they guard or restrain their dogs or animals. If you were in a public place or lawfully on private property and you are bitten by a dog or an animal, the owner is responsible for your injuries.

Maximizing Compensation for Dog Bite Victims

Multiple injuries can occur as a result of a dog bite or a dog attack. The primary injury that is present in most cases involves scarring. Scarring can be a permanent injury. The nature and extent of the scarring and the potential for scar revision is imperative to evaluate in all cases.

Most dog owners have homeowners or renters insurance which protects them for claims made as a result of their animal's conduct. Although these claims are typically covered by insurance, insurance adjusters often do not take these claims seriously and are unwilling to settle for fair compensation.

At the Law Office of Daniel W. Dunbar, our "trial ready" approach to dog bite cases is widely known among adjusters and will ensure maximum compensation for your personal injury claim

We provide compassionate and zealous advocacy to assist our clients through this difficult time in their lives.

No Fees Until We Get You Compensation

All negligence cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means you only pay legal fees if we recover on your claim. If there is no financial recovery, we receive no fee or reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses.
