We have recovered MILLIONS of dollars for our personal injury clients
Though you may not hear about animal attacks often, they are among the most common types of personal injury accidents. In fact, more than half of all emergency room visits for children are due to animal related injuries; even more than burns. Navigating the ins and outs of a personal injury claim after a dog bite on your own is difficult. Maybe the dog belongs to a family member, or maybe the animal’s owner won’t give you his or her insurance information.
This is where our Southern California accident attorneys can help. Our lawyers have helped hundreds of clients receive necessary medical treatment and compensation for pain and suffering after a dog bite. Call us today at 1-855-638-5739 for answers to your questions.
Why Should I Call a Personal Injury Attorney?
There are numerous difficult questions that need careful calculations and proper answers to evaluate a dog bite case. Insurance companies know that it’s almost impossible to undertake this task alone. Attempting to manage your legal issues by yourself can make you very vulnerable.
We can get you compensation for:
- Lost Wages and Loss of Employment
- Medical Bills and Future Therapy
- Past, Present and Future Pain and Suffering
- Home Nursing Care
- Punitive Damages
Insurance companies may try and take advantage of you to avoid paying out the proper sum of damages. As unfair as it may appear, there are clever defenses they can use to mitigate the harm you have suffered, and deprive you of the money you are entitled to obtain. We can stop this from happening.
When dealing with your dog bite or cat bite claim, our firm will make use of all the available resources to get you the money you need to balance your life again. Our accident lawyers will find out if a pet owner was negligent, or if proper fencing was in use, or if the dog was leashed, and gather the evidence we need to create the right arguments. We take the demands for our clients seriously, and want nothing but the best for you and your family.
Risk of Dog Bites in Los Angeles
If you are living in Los Angeles, you should be aware of the kind of danger you are exposed to from animals, whether they are strays or pets. There are more insurance claims for dog bites in California than any other state in the U.S. Dogs and cats are responsible for the largest percentage of bites in Los Angeles, and in 2009 more than 8,500 incidents were reported to the Los Angeles Public Health Department.
Animal attacks, especially with dogs, occur more frequently in the summer months, when pet owners let their dogs run freely with no leash, and when more people are outside enjoying the weather. The number of emergency visits to hospitals due to dog bites and other animal attacks has increased dramatically, and some of the attacks are vicious enough to cause permanent, irreversible damage.
At Bergener Mirejovsky, our experienced dog bite accident attorneys are here to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Don’t wait to seek medical attention and legal representation, even if it was a friend’s dog. Every case is different.
