Auburn Dog Bite Attorneys
Sacramento Animal Attack Lawyers
If you, your child or another loved one has been attacked by a dog, you have the right to pursue compensation. California law is very clear in these matters. When a dog bites or attacks someone – regardless of what may have happened that led up to the attack and regardless of the dog’s breed or history – the dog owner is responsible. However, you should not expect the insurance company to help you. Insurance companies are motivated to pay as little as possible. At Frank Law Group, P.C., we fight to get them to pay what is fair. Our attorneys are former insurance company employees who know the most efficient and effective ways to get you the money you deserve.
What to Do and What Not to Do After a Dog Attack
We encourage you to take the following steps after a dog attack:
- Find out who owns the dog and get the owner’s contact information
- Get contact information from any witnesses
- Report the accident to police or animal control
- Take photographs of your injuries
- Get medical attention
The insurance company may ask you to provide a recorded statement. Do not provide one. Do not make statements about your injuries or have any discussion about fault. These statements could be used against you. We encourage you to talk to us first.
Do You Know How Much Compensation You Deserve?
Mounting medical bills, lost paychecks and other costs can make the idea of a fast settlement sound very enticing. Insurance companies take advantage of the victim’s need by offering a quick dog bite settlement that may seem fair at first, but does not end up covering everything.
Our attorneys want to make certain that you receive compensation that covers all costs – past, present and future. In dog bite cases, we never accept any compensation until the wounds have been looked at by a cosmetic surgeon. This is particularly important when a child is the victim, because the recommended cosmetic surgery to repair facial injuries and other scarring may not be able to be conducted for several years. If the injury requires such a procedure, we do everything we can to make certain you get the compensation to cover it.
You Pay No Fee Unless We Recover Money for You
We handle all dog bite cases with an understanding of what is at stake and a deep sense of commitment to the people we serve. Because it is our policy that you pay no fee unless we recover compensation for you, we are truly motivated to get a fair outcome for you.
