Rely on Patrick S. Aguirre for skillful representation in any kind of dog bite injury case
Thankfully, the vast majority of dogs live up to their reputation as “man’s best friend” and never hurt anyone. But even the friendliest dog could attack and end up causing serious injury if it feels threatened or frightened.
Every Injury Deserves an Attorney’s Attention
It doesn’t matter if a dog was known to be dangerous or not, or even if it actually intended to cause harm. Whenever a pet causes an injury without provocation and/or through the negligence of its owner, the owner is liable under California law.
This means that your personal injury attorney can actually help with incidents besides dog bites. For example, perhaps an unleashed dog knocked you down or tripped you in the park. Because the dog owner was negligent in not controlling their pet, your attorney can help you file a claim against them for any bruises, sprains, cuts, broken bones, etc. you may have suffered.
Never assume you do not have grounds for compensation after a dog-related injury! Instead, get a professional opinion on your case from a qualified attorney like Patrick S. Aguirre.
How Much Compensation Do You Deserve?
Sometimes, dog owners try to convince bite victims that their wound isn’t too serious and they don’t need to report the bite to the authorities or involve an attorney. Of course the dog owner is hardly an objective voice in this situation and you should not agree to any amount of compensation they may offer without first consulting an experienced dog bite injury attorney like Patrick S. Aguirre.
You may be surprised to discover that your injury is actually deserving of more compensation that you may have imagined. Here’s why:
- Any dog bite injury will be a traumatic experience deserving of compensation for mental anguish
- Even a shallow dog bite may become infected and require medical attention
- Deep or ragged wounds may scar
- Serious wounds may make you miss work or cause permanent disability
- Facial wounds may require scar reduction surgery
Because Patrick S. Aguirre has many years of experience handling dog bite injury cases, he will be able to assist you in properly documenting and valuing all your damages so that you can receive appropriate compensation.
