Taking action to hold a negligent dog owner liable for a bite

Owning a pet is often a goal for residents in California and elsewhere. Having a cute and cuddly dog to come home to sounds very ideal. While being a pet owner has many perks and benefits, it also means a lot of responsibilities. This means a pet owner must take steps to ensure it is well cared for; however, a pet owner is also obligated to ensure that others are safe around their pet. Even if a dog has never shown any aggressive tendencies, it could bite or attack a stranger or a visitor, causing serious injuries to them.

Being bit by a dog is a very shocking event. No one expects to be harmed by a dog, as they are domesticated animals that individuals often seek to pet or play with. At Bender & Gritz, APLC, our experienced attorneys understand that a dog bite not only caused physical harm but also emotional and mental damages as well. Thus, our law firm is dedicated to helping individuals in the San Diego area understand their rights following a dog bite.

A dog bite often means seeking medical attention. Whether the injury was severe or not, a victim will require an assessment of the bite, ensuring he or she did not transmit rabbis. Depending on the details of the dog bite, a person could be emotionally scarred. This can make the healing process take much time, even causing the victim to fear being around other dogs.

Our law firm has helped past clients understand the options they have. Filing a personal injury claim against a negligent dog owner could help a victim recover damages, such as medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and other similar losses.
