About Dog Bites Claims
Dog Bite Attorney in Long Beach
Many people are not aware of the fact that they are able to file a claim for injury compensation if they have been injured in an accident that was not their fault. This right also applies to those who have been bitten by a dog. California dog bite law states that the owner of a dog who bites someone is liable for the victim's damages. Therefore, a dog bite victim can often file a claim with the dog owner's insurance company in an effort to obtain the money they need to cover the costs of their injuries.
Unfortunately, most insurance companies are reluctant to offer full payouts for dog bite victims. The primary reason for this is that insurance companies are interested in making money, and to offer full settlement sums would not be in their financial best interest. In fact, an insurance adjuster will frequently offer a dog bite victim 10% to 20% of what they would offer if the victim was represented by an attorney. That is why it is highly recommended that a dog bite victim retain the services of a Long beach dog bite attorney. An attorney will fight the insurance company on the victim's behalf, and increase their chances of receiving fair and adequate compensation for their dog bite injuries.
