If you're one of the 4.7 million Americans who've been bit by a dog this year, you already know it's no joke. Not only are dog bites painful and frightening but they can also be life threatening. Anyone bit by a dog should always have, at minimum, a blood test to insure that no contagious disease has been contracted.
Medical treatment is an expense you should not have to incur in addition to the ordeal of a dog bite. Most states hold dog owners accountable if their pet attacks. This means that you are entitled to compensation for medical costs, as well as any trauma experienced as a result of the attack.
California is a statutory strict liability state. Its dog bite statute makes the owner of a dog strictly liable for any dog bite from the moment that ownership begins, provided that the victim was not;
- provoking the dog
- injured by his employer's dog while on the job
- performing a paid service involving the dog.
At Law Office of David C. Siegel, we handle dog bite cases specifically and are diligent in getting our clients the justice and compensation they deserve.
