Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Due to Dog Bites and Maulings
California law provides for strict liability for dog owners in cases of serious injury caused by a bite or other attack, such as scarring or disfigurement requiring plastic surgery. Although many areas of our state used to have a so-called "free bite" rule, it is no longer necessary to prove owner negligence or intentional misconduct in order to recover compensation in many dog bite cases.
This does not mean that you can afford to enlist an inexperienced or unproven lawyer, however. At Dye & Duque, we understand that the serious nature of many dog bites — especially in cases in which a child or elderly individual is the victim — demands the service of a highly skilled and experienced attorney. To discuss your case in a free consultation, please contact us today.
Punitive Damages in Dog Bite Cases
Your maximum recovery is our priority, and we will work hard to help you obtain the full compensation available after a serious dog bite injury or mauling death. While proving negligence on the part of the dog owner may not be necessary to win your claim, it is vitally important in order to obtain punitive damages.
The team at Dye & Duque will conduct a rapid and thorough investigation of your case in search of any evidence of prior instances of aggression on the part of the dog or other animal that attacked you or your loved one. We are adept at explaining to insurance companies and juries the physical and psychological injuries that a dog bite victim may suffer. Our attorneys have a record of success in obtaining punitive damages against owners of pit bulls, Rottweilers and other breeds with a propensity for violence.
