We Are Here To Help Victims of Dog Bites and Other Animal Attacks

Sadly, most dog attack victims are children. Dog bites now cause more emergency room visits than any other children's activity. Severe injuries occur almost exclusively in children less than 10 years of age; 77% of injuries to children under 10 are facial. Ironically, the vast majority (61%) of these attacks occur at home or in the neighborhood. The victim's family, friend or neighbor usually owns the dog, which involves its own level of emotional problems because people are reluctant to sue a friend or relative. In almost every dog bite case it is the dog owners homeowners insurance that pays the settlement.

In California, when a dog bite causes injuries, the owner or person responsible for the dog is legally obligated to pay the animal attack victim's damages. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we can help you determine how you will be compensated for the pain, suffering and potentially permanent injuries caused by the attack. We know where and how to find the insurance coverage that will pay the dog bite victim.

At The Levine Law Firm we also make sure that you or your child has the resources you need to assist in the recovery from dog bite-related injuries as well as the long-term recovery from the emotional issues related to the possible long-term effects of the attack.

Victims of dog bites and other animal attacks, and the parents of victims who are children, should consult with an experienced California dog bite attorney as soon as possible after an attack. If you, your child or even a loved one has been a victim of an attack by a dog or other animal, please contact us.
