Our Fremont Dog Bite Attorneys Will Investigate Your Case.
When you contact us about your dog bite injury, we will immediately get to work investigating your case. We will work with you to identify the dog that attacked you, locate any liable parties, and uncover the dog’s history of harming other individuals. These factors can help us determine the best case strategy for you, whether it involves heavy negotiation with an opposing party’s insurance carrier, or heading straight to trial (or, in some cases, a combination of both).
California Dog Owners Are Strictly Liable for Injurious Incidents.
This means that you do not need to prove that the dog owner acted negligently to sue him for damages. Strict liability applies whether you are attacked in a public place or on private property. In other words, you can sue a dog owner for damages even if you are bitten while you are a guest in someone’s home. Generally, the specific breed of the dog, the dog’s history of violence, and the owner’s awareness of the dog’s dangerous proclivities will be irrelevant. To prove a case for strict liability, you will need to show that you were either present on public property or lawfully on private property at the time of the attack. If you were trespassing when you were bitten, your claim will be more difficult to prove. Additionally, you may need to show that you did not contribute to your injuries by, for instance, antagonizing or harassing the dog.
