Our personal injury attorneys work with insurance companies to achieve the appropriate settlement for their clients; however, we do not hesitate to use every legal action available to restore the health of our clients.
Common Dog Bite Injuries
Dog bite victims often require serious medical attention due to the possible chance of an infection from disease or bacteria that the dog is carrying. In fact, many dogs in the Los Angeles area carry disease and bacteria that require the immediate medical attention of antibiotics. Emergency treatment immediately after an incident and transportation to a medical facility by medical transport is expensive however for an animal-related attack is necessary. Our personal injury attorneys will work hard to get you full compensation for any long term-rehabilitation needs that was caused by complications of injuries such as:
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Eye injuries
- Severe infections, such as rabies
- Amputation of fingers and nose
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones from falling due to an attack

There is no limit for health coverage; we will arrange treatment for you regardless of the cost or duration of the treatment. Fees, representation, and cost of litigation are subject to a contingent fee, meaning that payment to the firm is not required until a settlement has been reached in your favor.
What Causes Dog Attacks?
Injuries caused by dog bites can accredit a range of mild cuts to major lacerations and deep puncture wounds. Inattentive, abusive, and/or irresponsible dog owners are the most common cause of dog bite accidents and attacks. Careless owners can lose control of their pets easily. This lack of control causes a dangerous interaction between the animal and public. Most dog bite accidents or an attack caused by any other animal caused by one or more of the following:
- Irresponsible care for the animal
- Lack of medical care for the dog
- Abuse or mistreatment
