    Dog Bite Lawyer Santa Ana

    Have you recently been the victim of a dog bite in Santa Ana? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for medical treatment, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other types of damages. Contact a dog bite lawyer Santa Ana at the MVP Accident Attorneys today to learn more about your legal options and how you can hold the dog's owner responsible for your medical treatment and other damages.

    What to Do After a Dog Bite

    If you've been bitten by a dog, you must take certain steps as soon as possible both to preserve your right to file a claim and for the sake of your health. At MVP Accident Attorneys, we recommend:

    • Seeking medical treatment as soon as possible
    • Obtaining the dog owner's information
    • Writing down the details of the attack
    • Reporting the attack to your local County Health Department or the police
    • Calling a Santa Ana dog bite attorney

    California Dog Bite Laws

    In California, there's a statute that's specific to dog bites. This statute states that the dog’s owner should be held liable for a person's injuries if their dog bites him or her when the person is lawfully in a public or private place.

    Since California is a strict liability state in terms of dog bite law, the dog's owner can be held liable for your injuries, even if the owner had no reason to believe that their dog might bite.

    Considering animal bite laws can be complex, it makes sense to speak with a dog bite lawyer in Santa Ana early in the process.

    Documentation for Your Lawyer

    If you're a victim of a dog bite, documenting your injuries is extremely important. Taking photographs and maintaining a photo timeline will be very valuable. The experienced dog bite attorneys at MVP Accident Attorneys can help you understand how to fully document your injuries and other damages and will work tirelessly to recover compensation on your behalf.

    In some cases, dog bite injuries are not immediately obvious.

    The Investigation

    Once you hire a Santa Ana dog bite lawyer from MVP Accident Attorneys, we will immediately begin an investigation and gather vital evidence that can prove the dog's owner should be held liable for your injuries and other damages. We will collect your medical records, any documentation on the dog such as a history of aggressive behavior, and vaccination records, photographs of your injuries, a police report if one was made, and eyewitness testimony from anyone who witnessed the dog attack you. These cases can be very complex if there were no witnesses to the attack. In most cases, even if the dog's owner saw their dog attack you, they will not give an attorney the full story, fearing their dog will be taken away. Because of this, a dog bite case can be very challenging. Fortunately, the legal experts at MVP Accident Attorneys have extensive experience working on these types of complex cases and will gather the evidence needed to uncover the truth.

    Dog Bite Injuries

    If you're attacked by a dog the injuries can be severe. This is true whether the dog knocks you down or bites you multiple times.

    Potential injuries from dog bites include:

    • Internal injuries
    • Tissue damage
    • Infection
    • Psychological harm
    • Disfigurement
    • Scarring
    • Bone fractures

    In some cases, a dog bite can cause a disability or long-term scarring. In severe cases, dog attacks can be fatal.

    Liability

    Dog bite injuries can be superficial and can also cause significant damage to the muscles and tissue below the skin. Many victims of dog bites develop trauma and phobias as a result of being attacked by an animal. In civil litigation, establishing emotional and physical injuries requires formal procedures for admitting the evidence and expert testimony.

    Typically, the defense attorney will argue that the dog bite victim came too close to the animal, ignored a warning, or otherwise acted negligently to entice the animal. Therefore, you need an experienced dog bite attorney in your corner. We will defend you in negotiations or court and meet insurance companies and defense attorneys head-on. We will not allow anyone to intimidate you or place the blame on you to minimize payout.
