Animal and Dog Bite

San Francisco Bay Area Dog Bite and Animal Attack Lawyers

If You’ve Been Bitten or Injured by a Dog, Know Your Rights

A dog bite injury is  just one type of personal injury claim that we specialize in when fighting for our clients’ rights in court. For more about our personal injury services, please see our “Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney” page. Or for other types of personal injury claims we support, see the links below.

There are approximately 4.7 million dog bite injuries in the United States each year.  In the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout California, dog owners are responsible if their dog bites and injures someone. California applies a standard of strict liability in dog attack cases, meaning that the animal’s owner bears responsibility for an attack. Nevertheless, there can be additional legal issues that require investigation and analysis.

Our firm thoroughly reviews all aspects of your case. The most important thing for you to do is to get prompt medical care and then seek legal advice.  Dog bite victims have the right to claim compensation for medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
