Dogs can make great companions. In fact, many people treat their dogs like children or another special member of the family. Unfortunately, even the most docile animals will bite under some circumstances.
In California, if a dog has bitten a person more than twice, it is considered to be a vicious dog. The owner must take action to confine and monitor the dog to ensure that it does not attack again. If another attack occurs, animal control or the district attorney may seize the dog and choose to put him or her down to prevent another incident from occurring.
If a dog has attacked you, your child or another loved one, you may be hesitant to take legal action for fear that the dog may be put down and your neighbor will lose a member of his or her family. However, you have a right to protect yourself and your family from future harm. And The Kreeger Law Firm is here to help you.
For more than 20 years, our firms' founder Christopher L. Kreeger has helped people in Sacramento and throughout Northern California get the compensation that they need following a vicious dog attack. Call us at 916-663-5522 to schedule a free consultation.
More Than 20 Years of Experience
Dog owners in California have strict liability when it comes to dog bites. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, you do not have to prove that the dog owner was negligent or the dog has a history of vicious and aggressive behavior in order to pursue a claim.
Treatment for dog bites can be expensive and may require several surgeries. Even with proper medical treatment, the physical and emotional scars from a dog bite can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, the insurance company is on not on your side and will try to offer you a settlement that is less than what you deserve.
At The Kreeger Law Firm, we understand that you are only seeking the compensation that you need to recover from your injuries and move on with your life. We will work with the insurance companies to get you the financial support you need following a dog attack.
