Why do you need a lawyer after a dog bite?

by Staff Blogger | April 30th, 2018

Getting injured by a dog is a shocking and traumatizing experience. Most people expect dogs to be friendly and docile, but even the most well-trained dogs can attack without provocation and without a history of biting.

People who are bitten by dogs often experience severe pain, and they may be at risk of serious health problems due to common complications associated with dog bites. Bleeding, nerve damage, and infection are all possibilities after dog bites, and in severe cases, victims may even experience life-threatening complications.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California dog bite lawyers are here to help people who were hurt by dogs. Bite-related injuries can be expensive and disabling, and victims may require weeks or months of medical care and rehabilitation—all while being unable to work.

If you or someone you love was hurt by a dog, it’s our goal to help you:

  • Prove the dog’s owner didn’t follow local ordinances—Whether the owner neglected to leash or enclose his or her dog, we’ll collect evidence that proves negligence was a key factor in your injury.
  • Calculate your bite-related expenses—Surgery, prescription medications, and physical rehabilitation can be expensive, especially when you’re disabled and not earning the paycheck you depend on. We’ll make sure the insurance company knows how much the bite has cost you and your loved ones.
