Marin County Dog Bite Lawyers
California Dog Bite and Attack Injury Attorneys
In California, if you are bitten or attacked by a dog, the law provides that the owner is responsible for any injuries even without proving fault (this is referred to as “strict liability”).
Being attacked by an animal is frightening and usually surprising. We don’t expect to be attacked by someone’s pet. At Marin Litigators, we help people who have been attacked by dogs and other animals. Our clients include bicyclists, pedestrians, horseback riders and others on private property or people using public walkways, roads and trails.
Our law firm has assisted many people after a dog bite or attack, helping them secure compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other expenses and damages related to the attack. Our success is based on our investigation of the bite or attack, the animal and the animal’s owner. Our lawyers build strong cases based on the facts.
Investigating an Animal Attack
We look at issues such as these when investigating a dog bite or other animal attack case:
- Was the animal known to be aggressive or vicious?
- Has the animal attacked someone before?
- Was the animal abused or mistreated?
- What were the circumstances of the attack?
- Were there any witnesses?
- Are there records of the dog at the local pound or shelter?
Animal attacks can result in scarring, infection, disfigurement, nerve damage and psychological trauma. The legacy of an animal attack can last a lifetime and cause suffering long after the wounds have healed.
