Vista Dog Bite Lawyer

Get Legal Representation After a Dog Bite Attack

Recent scientific studies show that dogs were domesticated as early as 135,000 years ago. Considering this time span, it's no wonder that dogs and humans have developed such a strong bond. But "man's best friend" is still a creature of habit, instinct, training, and environment--a mixture that can sometimes be dangerous to people.

If you or a family member has been injured by a dog bite, the owner of that dog can be held liable for certain damages. To find out more about your legal rights and options in a dog bite incident, you need to consult an experienced personal injury attorney in Vista.

The San Diego County offices of Jurewitz Law Group have represented Vista, California dog bite victims for over 15 years. We've secured our clients substantial settlements. Call Jurewitz Law Group today for a free consultation by dialing (888) 233-5020.

Common Dog Bite Injuries

The following are injuries often associated with dog bites:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Contusions
  • Abrasions
  • Hematoma
  • Crushed and fractured bones
  • Dislocated limbs
  • Avulsion (torn flesh)

The AVMA estimates that 27,000 dog bite victims undergo reconstructive surgery each year.

Emotional Injuries from Dog Bites

Along with the physical injuries, there can also be severe emotional injuries resulting from a dog attack, particularly in young children. A dog bite victim may develop a lifelong fear of dogs, which can be a debilitating condition.

Scarring and Disfigurement Dog Bite Injuries

The most frequent target of a dog attack is the face, resulting in approximately 44,000 facial injuries each year. Scarring and disfigurement, particularly in a child, can result in lifelong emotional consequences and painful plastic surgeries and skin grafts.

Dog Bite Damages in Vista

If you or a loved one is injured by a dog bite, you may be able to pursue compensation for the following damages:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills (such as reconstructive and plastic surgeries)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical and mental therapy
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of occupation or earning capacity
  • Wrongful death damages (the AVMA reported 31 fatal dog attacks in 2013)

It's Not the Dog's Fault

Most dog bites are the result of abuse, improper training, improper supervision, and negligent care. In California, dog bites fall under "strict reliability," meaning that a dog's owner must accept all liability for the attack and cannot dispute their degree of fault.
