Dog Bites

In California, dog owners are strictly liable for the injuries their pets cause. If you were attacked or bitten by a dog, you are entitled to compensation.

The state classifies certain dogs as "dangerous dogs" and requires owners to take extra precautions to protect the general public.

At Bird & Van Dyke, we represent clients throughout Northern California who have been bitten or attacked by dogs. Together, we will get you the compensation you deserve. Our offices are conveniently located in Stockton and Tracy.

Attacked By A Dog? You Are Entitled To Compensation.

Dog bites can result in serious physical injuries, infection, scarring and even disfigurement. Injury victims often require extensive medical treatments, ongoing physical therapy and even reconstructive surgery.

Many people experience mental and emotional distress after an animal attack. Physical disfigurement and scarring from a dog bite can impact self-esteem, and memories of the attack may result in post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD).

At Bird & Van Dyke, we will pursue compensation for all of your injuries, including:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Current and future medical bills
  • Emotional and mental distress

Stand Up To Insurance Companies And Maximize Your Compensation

After a dog bite, you have one chance to get compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies will do everything in their power to minimize your claim. Do not agree to a settlement that does not fully compensate you for your injuries. Contact a personal injury attorney.

At Bird & Van Dyke, we have a reputation for being aggressive in the courtroom and at the bargaining table. We know how much your claim is worth and will not let insurance companies take advantage of you. If we cannot obtain a fair settlement through negotiation, we will go to court and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
