Dog Bites

Southern California Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Helping Dog Bite Victims

When you or someone you love has been mauled or bitten by a dog, you want an experienced and aggressive attorney to protect your rights. Dog bite injuries should be reported to local Animal Control authorities. Victims have the right, under California law, to recover full and fair compensation for all injuries, including medical bills, lost wages, the costs of rehabilitation and physical therapy, and compensation for pain and suffering.

At the offices of Kerr & Sheldon, A Professional Law Corporation, in Fountain Valley, we have represented dog bite victims throughout Southern California since 1979. Contact us for a free case evaluation.

Statistics show that almost a million people every year are injured in animal attacks, resulting in millions of dollars in medical costs. Unfortunately, most of the victims of dog bites and animal attacks are children. If you or your child has been attacked and bitten by a dog in Southern California, we can help.

Under California’s dog bite law, section 3342 of the Civil Code, you don’t need to show that an animal was known to be vicious before it attacked you. You can successfully recover even if the only person the dog ever bit was you. To recover damages for a dog bite, all you need to show is that:

  • The defendant owned the dog that bit you
  • You were legally on the property where the attack took place or that it was in a public place
  • You suffered an injury
