Recovering Compensation in your Dog Bite Case
Dog Bite Lawyer in Long Beach
An individual who has been bitten by a dog has the legal right to seek fair injury compensation for their injuries from the dog's owner. According to California law, a dog owner can no longer escape liability because "they did not know their dog was dangerous." Even if it was the first instance of the dog biting someone, the owner still possesses strict liability in the case, and may be held responsible for the victim's damages.
As a dog bite victim, one of the most effective ways to go about recovering compensation is filing a claim with an insurance company. People who are successful in doing this often recover damages from the dog owner's homeowners' insurance policy, though renters and dog ownership policies can be used as well. In the event that the dog owner's insurance is not enough to cover the damages that the victim has sustained, then they may end up being required to pay out-of-pocket. To increase your chances of recovering adequate compensation in your dog bite case, it is recommended you retain the services of a Long Beach dog bite lawyer. They will be able to assist you in possibly securing that compensation from the insurance company or the dog owner themselves.
