Don’t Let a Dog Bite Slide

by Staff Blogger | February 11th, 2019

It’s becoming more and more common to see dogs in public throughout the Bay Area and the rest of California. Whether you’re at work, at the store, at a restaurant, or at the park, you may encounter multiple dogs. And while most of those dogs will be leashed and well-behaved, some may be improperly restrained or roaming freely—and they may lash out and bite without provocation or a previous history of aggression. If you or someone you love was bitten by a dog, you may be experiencing debilitating pain and even disability. Dog bites aren’t just painful—they can also result in severe complications, including nerve damage and infection. In some cases, victims lose feeling or movement in affected limbs, while others may face life-threatening complications due to systemic infections that spread throughout their bodies. At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California dog bite lawyers stand up for the rights of victims like you. We know that many victims initially dismiss bites as unavoidable accidents, but it’s important to view them for what they are: negligence on the part of dog owners. In California, dog owners are required to keep their pets restrained in enclosures or on leashes. When they fail to do so and their dogs bite, they can be held liable for any damages. You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for your dog-bite related expenses, including your medical bills and lost wages. Let us help you recover maximum compensation for what you’ve gone through.
