Bitten by a Dog? Call (888) 315-0588

Dog bites are extremely common in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, with about 885,000 people needing medical attention for their injuries. Nearly half of these cases are children.

Dog owners have a certain amount of liability for their pets in the state of California, especially if the owner didn’t take proper care to restrain their dog. If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog due to its owner’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation to help pay for you or your medical bills, pain and suffering, or lost wages.

What should I do after a bite?

After a dog attack, you should act fast to build your case. Dog bites can lead to serious infections, and you should make sure that your wounds are treated with the help of a doctor.

After you’ve been bitten, you should:

  • Seek medical attention
  • Preserve all evidence
  • Take any witness statements
  • Photograph your wounds
