26+ Years of Experience as a Dog Bite Attorney Serving Bakersfield, California

Many people who are bitten by a dog recover quickly depending on the severity of the bite. However, dogs can inflict an incredible amount of damage on a person, especially children. In 2013, State Farm had to pay out over $104 Million for about 3,700 claims (an average of roughly $30,000 per claimant). Of those cases, most of the victims were children. In a story that went viral about a cat protecting a boy in Bakersfield from a dog attack, the dog had to ultimately be euthanized.

The Paris Firm Wins $100,000 Settlement for Dog Bite Claim

Our Client was at work when she was attacked by a dog which bit her arm so hard that it crushed the bone. After the insurance company purposely delayed, the case settled for the entire homeowners insurance policy the day after we destroyed the defendant in deposition.

Dog attacks can cause serious injuries and other conditions, including:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Infection, including rabies infection
  • Scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Traumatic brain injury from being knocked down
  • Psychological conditions, including PTSD

Injuries to the face, arms, hands, and legs are common. Serious dog bites can require multiple surgeries, including plastic surgery, to repair the damage.

Dog Owners Are Liable for Injuries Caused by Their Dog

The state of California supports dog bite victims by requiring pet owners to be responsible for their actions. California holds dog owners strictly liable for damages their dogs cause. In a dog bite injury claim, we need to prove only that:

  • The dog bit and injured you
  • The defendant owned the dog
  • You were in a public place or lawfully on private property when the dog bite occurred

It doesn’t matter whether the owner knew the dog was dangerous, whether the dog had bitten anyone previously, or if the dog that bit you was of a dangerous breed. Dog owners and/or those who were caring for the dog at the time of the attack are responsible for damages.
