Get Compensation After An Animal Attack

Dogs can be man's best friend, but they are also animals with a set of instincts that sometimes can be dangerous to humans. If you have been bitten by a dog, the first thing you should do is seek proper medical attention, including a rabies vaccination if your doctor deems it necessary.

Once you have been treated, the next step is to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, which can be used to mitigate the cost of your medical bills and other expenses. Furthermore, pursuing a personal injury case against the dog's owner can help prevent the animal in question from attacking other people in the future.

At Wilcoxen Callaham, LLP, we will listen to the details of your case and design a legal strategy tailored to your needs. Our top priorities are to get you the compensation you deserve, and to hold the owners of animals accountable for the harm that they cause.

Experienced California Dog Bite Lawyers

First and foremost, dog owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs contained in a controlled area, either inside their home, with fencing or on a leash. A dog that is allowed loose on the streets stands a much higher chance of causing a dangerous incident than one that is being watched by its owner.

Even in areas where dogs are commonly found, like public parks, an attentive owner can make the difference between a bit of barking and a serious injury such as:

  • Puncture wounds

  • Laceration

  • Contusion/abrasion/hematoma

  • Infection

  • Amputation/avulsion/crush

  • Fracture/dislocation
