Being bitten by a dog can be a terrifying experience and an extremely expensive one when you require long-term medical care for your injuries. Even if you have been bitten by a dog you are familiar with, including one that belongs to a friend, family member, or neighbor, that does not exclude them from being liable for the financial fallout their pet has created.
At Eldessouky Law, our Anaheim, California dog bite attorney will help you understand your rights, and what type of financial recovery you are entitled to based on your injuries and the circumstances surrounding your case. Here’s what you should know.
Pet Owners Are Responsible For Their Dogs At Home And In Public
If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog while you are an invited guest at someone’s home, or on their private property, the owner is liable for your damages you have suffered.
Trespassers do not share the same rights as those who are lawfully on another’s property, and the distinction will make a difference in your case.
If you are on public property, and the dog owner has negligently left a door or gate open, and their dog bites or attacks you while loose, the owner is liable for the animal’s escape and the harm inflicted.
There are countless dog bite scenarios that can lead to our office pursuing financial recovery for your injuries. We simply need to understand the details of your case to determine how to move forward.
Is A Dog Bite Considered A Personal Injury in Anaheim, California?
Dog bites are, in fact, personal injuries that can inflict emotional distress, require medical care, and time away from work, which can lead to mounting expenses and debt that can be pursued for recovery.
The dog’s owner is responsible for each of the financial obligations that result from the bite their pet inflicted. It is important that you are not swayed when pursuing these damages simply because the owner is someone you know, or the dog was once a trusted pet. Your medical care may be costly, and the time you spend without a paycheck can set you back for months. You should not have to bear that financial burden alone.
