Have You Been Injured In A Dog Bite Attack?
- Getting A Top Santa Cruz Dog Bite Attorney Is Only One Call Away!
CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE 3342 IMPOSES STRICT LIABILITY UPON THE OWNER OF A DOG THAT BITES A PERSON. When a dog owner fails to control his or her pet and the dog bites another person the person who was attacked is entitled to be compensated for all medical bills, pain and suffering and for any resulting disfigurement. Unfortunately, dog bites can cause severe disfigurement which often requires extensive surgery. Although plastic surgery can potentially diminish the amount of disfigurement the surgery itself invariably leaves permanent scars. Facial scars caused by dog bites justify large compensation settlement or awards. Dog bites can also cause nerve damage that may stay with the victim for life. Lawyer Christopher Landis knows the tremendous damage dog bites can cause and will fight aggressively for his clients to get them every dollar of compensation to which they are entitled.

Dog bite accidents can be very painful, particularly if there was an infection or rabies shots had to be administered, and the victim is certainly entitled to be compensated for all the pain that was experienced. However, most often the most serious consequences of being bitten by a dog are the emotional trauma and the terrible scars which will, unfortunately, be permanent in nature. Permanent disfigurement, particularly if the dog bit the victim in the face or another conspicuous place, normally requires much more substantial compensation than compensation for the physical pain. From the legal point of view it is necessary to ascertain the identity of the dog’s owner and that the owner has assets or insurance. If you or a loved one was the victim of such an accident you should contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
