The choices you make after being hurt in a San Diego dog attack can affect your ability to fully recover and the likelihood that you will receive fair compensation for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the attack, you could be eligible for support for your medical bills, future treatments, pain psychological counseling, and other related losses.
Right after being attacked, your heart may be racing and you may be in a considerable amount of pain. Try to remain calm and get yourself out of harm’s way. Here are a few steps you can take to protect your legal rights:
Under California law, victims of San Diego dog attacks can hold the owner of the dog liable for their injuries. In fact, the dog owner can be held financially responsible for injuries and damages caused by his or her pet. Injured victims can seek compensation to cover damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, cost of surgery, scarring or disfigurement, and pain and suffering. An experienced San Diego dog bite attorney can help injured victims seek compensation and hold negligent dog owners accountable.
