We Can Help Build Your Case If You Have Been Hurt

California follows a strict liability principle. So regardless of whether the dog had a history of aggressive behavior or biting, the dog owner should be held responsible for the injuries you have suffered. Even if the dog owner never knew that the dog could be aggressive or never had an episode of viciousness brought to their attention, they are held responsible. In these circumstances, you can recover damages that are entitled to you by law.

Engaging in a skilled San Diego County dog bite lawyer to help build your case, however, is necessary since damages and compensation are not awarded automatically.

    Your lawyer will need to retain the services of experts who will help establish important facts vital to your case such as the severity of your injury, ownership of the dog, the identity of the dog, its link to your injury, negligence on the part of the owner and negligent entrustment to an unfit handler are something your lawyer will seek from other experts.

If you want a successful conclusion to your case, the vitality of proof to the facts above is of utmost importance. Our skilled dog bite lawyer is aware of what to look for and will work endlessly to establish these facts from the first meeting. Those injured from dog bites are permitted to receive compensation for the harm they have suffered. In the case of a dog injury, you may be entitled to recover damages covering the areas such as pain and suffering, lifestyle changes and permanent disfigurement or scarring, past medical expenses, future or long-term medical costs, lost wages, or out of pocket expenses.

This is a joint effort. There are no fees unless we win.

By hiring the Dog Bite Law Group and we don’t recover money for you on your case, you owe us absolutely nothing. You may ask, “Do I owe any money if my case doesn’t recover anything?” Certainly not. We operate on a contingency fee when you retain us. This means we get a percentage of the recovery that we get for you with our legal work. If no recovery is made, then there is no fee and you don't pay a penny.
