What Are My Legal Options After Sustaining a Dog Bite or Being Attacked By A Dog?

A Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney From Heinrich Law, PC Can Explain

People across the Bay Area own dogs thanks to these animals’ reputation for loving companionship. However, dogs can still be dangerous, especially if their owners are neglectful and fail to train them. This can lead to serious injuries, and in some cases, wrongful death. So, what do the victims of a dog attack do if they find themselves injured by someone’s pet? The first step is to consult a Bay Area personal injury attorney.

Here at Heinrich Law, PC, our dog bite lawyers have a wealth of experience helping victims in ways you may not have thought of. For instance, did you realize that many homeowner or renters insurance policies cover damages caused by pet attacks? Our attorneys can help you pursue a dog bite or dog attack insurance claim. With our founder’s years of experience representing insurance companies, you will also have a strategic advantage when facing any insurers trying to deny or minimize your claim.

Dog bites and dog attacks should never be taken lightly. These injuries can expose victims to diseases, cause infections, leave permanent scars and can cause broken bones and fractured hips. Dog attacks can also lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other psychological issues. If the resulting medical bills are unaffordable, recovering compensation may be an option to help handle these expenses.
