Welcome to Our Law Firm
Welcome to our law firm. If you have been injured in an accident, you will need a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to fight for your legal rights. Most personal injury lawyers will provide a free consultation, whether or not you sign with them. Our law firm is glad to inform you that we are such firm. Our attorneys have many years of experience fighting for victims of accidents, and they will be glad to help you with your case.
Our law firm deals mostly with animal attack cases. These are usually dog bites and dog attacks. When a person is attacked by a dog, they may have a case against the dog owner, and possibly against the landlord or the premises, if the accident occurred in a building structure. Each liability theory will be analyzed below.
In the State of California, a dog owner is strictly liable for any damage that a victim of a dog bite suffers. Many states have a one-bite rule, in which the owner of a friendly dog, which has never bitten anyone, gets one free chance. However, California does not have such rule. Even if the dog has always been friendly, and it bites someone, the owner is still liable for the dog bite.
Sometimes, victims of dog bites feel uncomfortable filing a lawsuit for their injuries, because the victim and dog owner are friends. Sometimes, you don't want to risk compromising that relationship. That is completely understandable, and the good news is that if the owner has homeowner 's insurance, then we may be able to sue the insurance company directly. This way, your friend or relative is not hurt, and your relationship will not be jeopardized.
There are also other possible defendants in a dog bite case. The website http://www.dogbitelawyer.us/ is a site that helps people all over the United States with dog bite cases, and it states that the owner of the building where the dog attack happened may also be a liable party. Under certain circumstances, where the landlord was negligent in the face of foreseeable risk, and that negligence caused you damages, that property owner may be liable. For example, there is a famous case where a tenant in a building owned a dangerous dog. The neighbors and the landlord knew the dog was dangerous. In fact, the dog had bitten someone in the past, and the landlord knew of the dangerous propensities of this dog, but failed to do anything about it. In that particular case, which is a very important case that every attorney should remember, the plaintiff won against the landlord.
Depending on the particular circumstances of your case, our law firm may also be able to file lawsuits against other parties involved in your case.
