Bitten by an Unrestrained Dog? You May Be Eligible for Compensation.

by Staff Blogger | April 22nd, 2019

Dog owners in California are supposed to keep their pets leashed and restrained in public and on their properties. When they fail to do so, they can injure innocent victims—even if they have no previous history of aggression.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California dog bite lawyers know how serious dog attacks can be for victims. Dogs can have sharp teeth that can damage skin, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Victims often experience debilitating effects after bites, including reduced mobility, disability, and even life-threatening infections and blood loss.

If you or someone you love was bitten by an unrestrained dog, you deserve maximum compensation. You may be facing expensive medical bills for everything from overnight hospital stays and surgeries to prescription medications and physical rehabilitation. We believe that innocent victims like you shouldn’t have to pay for dog bite-related expenses out of pocket when owners are negligent and allow their pets to roam freely.

In addition to serious health complications, dog bites can also result in permanent disability. Victims may have nerve damage and lose the use of affected digits and limbs, making it difficult or impossible for them to do their jobs. That means they miss out on wages both while they’re in the hospital and long after they get released.
