How A Dog Bite Lawyer Can Help

Whether you intend to file a personal injury claim or a lawsuit, our Los Angeles dog bite lawyer is an invaluable aid in your pursuit of compensation. A lawyer will first consult with you on the specifics of your case, answer your questions, and advise you on the best steps for you to take. They will then investigate your case from the actual incident to its aftermath and your injuries. They will identify the at-fault party and gather evidence that proves liability on their behalf, thus making you potentially eligible for compensation. 

After investigating and building your case, a lawyer will file a personal injury claim with insurance on your behalf and negotiate with the insurance company, fighting for a settlement that represents the full and fair amount that you are owed. If a fair settlement cannot be reached during negotiations, filing a lawsuit and taking your case to trial may be the best option. A lawyer will assist you in all steps of this process from filing the lawsuit to pre-trial negotiations and representing you in court.

Understanding Compensation For Dog Bite Injuries

In the aftermath of a dog bite injury, financial concerns might not be at the forefront of your mind, but receiving compensation can be a crucial part of your recovery. Financial compensation for dog bite injuries is meant to help you finance your recovery and give you peace of mind and comfort after an injury. Our dog bite lawyer will identify who is at fault for your injury and seek compensation from them in order to cover the damages you have suffered as a result.

Compensation for a dog bite injury will vary from case to case but generally covers expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation and therapy, damaged property, pain and suffering, and emotional distress and anguish. To understand the type of compensation applicable to your case, contact our Los Angeles dog bite lawyer today.

Los Angeles Dog Bite FAQs

Dog bites can be both traumatic and complex in legal terms, particularly in a bustling city like Los Angeles. At the Law Offices of Edward Y. Lee, we specialize as Los Angeles Dog Bite Attorneys and understand the myriad of questions that victims and their families face in such situations. Here, we address some of the most common queries to help clarify the legal landscape surrounding dog bite incidents.

Can A Landlord Be Held Liable For A Tenant’s Dog Bite In Los Angeles?

In certain circumstances, a landlord can be held liable for a tenant’s dog bite in Los Angeles. This typically depends on whether the landlord knew (or should have known) about the dog’s dangerous tendencies and had control over preventing the animal from causing harm, such as in common areas of a rental property. As your attorney, we would examine the specifics of the case, including the landlord’s knowledge and the circumstances of the incident, to determine if there is a viable claim against the landlord.

What Evidence Should I Collect After A Dog Bite In Los Angeles?

After a dog bite incident, it’s crucial to collect as much evidence as possible. This includes taking photographs of your injuries, the location where the incident occurred, and, if possible, the dog. Gather contact information of any witnesses and the dog owner, and obtain a copy of the police or animal control report if one was made. Medical records relating to your treatment will also be vital. As an experienced Los Angeles Dog Bite Attorney, we use this evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.

How Do Attorneys Charge For Their Services?

Most attorneys, including our firm, work on a contingency fee basis. This means our fees are contingent upon the outcome of your case; we only receive payment if we successfully obtain compensation for you. The fee is typically a percentage of the settlement or award. This arrangement allows victims to pursue their legal claims without the burden of upfront legal fees.

What Is The “One-Bite Rule” And Does It Apply In Los Angeles Dog Bite Cases?

The “one-bite rule” refers to a legal principle where a dog owner may not be held liable for a dog bite if they had no reason to believe the dog was dangerous. However, California, including Los Angeles, does not follow this rule. Instead, California law imposes strict liability on dog owners, meaning a dog owner can be held liable for a dog bite even if the dog has never bitten anyone before or shown aggressive tendencies.

Can I File A Claim If My Child Was Bitten By A Dog In Los Angeles?

Yes, you can file a claim if your child was bitten by a dog in Los Angeles. Children are often victims of dog bites and may suffer severe physical and emotional injuries. As your attorney, we can help you seek compensation for your child’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and any psychological counseling needed as a result of the bite.

At our firm we are committed to providing compassionate and effective legal representation to dog bite victims and their families in Los Angeles.
