Dog Bite Attorney in Irvine
Helping Dog Attack Victims
Owners of dogs should be held responsible for the actions of their pets. According to California law, a pet owner can be held legally liable for the injuries and damages resulting from an attack. Unfortunately, the injury rate from dog attacks is highest in those aged 5 to 9 years old, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The physical injuries from dog bites can be very serious to the young and an attack can leave a child emotionally traumatized. A compassionate and committed Irvine personal injury lawyer can help your family receive proper compensation for the harmful effects of an attack by a dog.
The latest statistics from the CDC reveal that more than 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs each year. Nearly 400,000 of those injured required emergency medical treatment. Commonly, the results of attacks by dogs are injuries to the hands and arms, feet and legs and the head or neck area. These injuries can include lacerations, punctures, abrasions, fractures and, in extreme cases, amputation. Victims deserve an advocate, someone who is going to look out for their needs and this is where we can be of service to you.
Holding Dog Owners Responsible
The first concern after an attack is for the immediate medical needs of the victim. Beyond that, there may be other medical procedures and treatments that are needed. If you were attacked you may be out of work and unable to earn wages. If your child was the victim, you may need to take time off from work to properly look after them. Mental suffering can be a very real outcome of an attack and at the Pacific Attorney Group we strongly feel that those responsible for the attacks should pay compensation for your suffering.
In extreme cases, dog attacks can result in a wrongful death. Whether it is injury, a death or emotional suffering that is the outcome of an attack, you and your family will probably need help to recover and get your life back to normal. Allow us the opportunity to resolve the legal side of matters while you take care of yourself and your family.
