Berkeley Dog Bite Attorney
Injury Claims in Animal Attacks
Pet owners hold the responsibility for ensuring that their pets do not pose a danger to neighbors, guests or any person in their vicinity. Although many people love the idea of a cute puppy, if they fail to get their animal properly trained, it can become a serious danger to others. This situation continues to cause families great emotional upheaval and pain, as the injuries inflicted by a vicious dog can be life threatening, emotionally traumatic and lead to permanent scarring and severe infections. A Berkeley personal injury lawyer from Clancy & Diaz, LLP can advise you how to proceed with legal action against a dog owner who has failed to protect others from harm. Children are particularly at risk due to their height and the access to the throat, head and other parts of the upper body. They often suffer very serious injuries when a vicious dog attacks, leading to the need for long term medical care and treatment to attempt to resolve the injuries and avoid the serious infections that are very likely in dog bite cases.
Dog Bite Injury Claims in Berkeley
If you or a loved one has been the victim of dog bite, we urge you to contact our firm at once. As with any injury claim, proving negligence is a critical aspect of the legal process of recovering compensation. We will seek the maximum possible compensation from the dog owner's homeowner's insurance policy or other insurance that the owner may hold. It is necessary that the injured victim gets the highest quality medical care and treatment, and this is costly. Many dog bite injuries will require multiple surgeries to attempt to resolve ripped and torn skin and flesh, whether on the head, scalp, face or other part of the body. These surgeries and all other damages, including the pain and suffering, will be relentlessly pursued by our firm. We provide personal, individual legal service and always are accessible and there to advise you as to the progress of your claim and what can be expected with regard to compensation.
