Victims of dog bites often suffer severe trauma, not only physically but also psychologically. Physical scarring or disfigurement are sometimes permanent and life-changing and many victims experience serious fear and wariness towards dogs for the rest of their lives.
The attorneys at Guichard Teng Portillo & Garrett understand what dog bite victims go through and are committed to obtaining fair compensation for those victims – at no up front cost to you.
If you have been bitten by a dog, it is important that you act quickly to protect your rights. Our attorneys and staff will obtain medical records, police reports, take pictures of your injuries and obtain information about the dog and the dog owner in order to negotiate the maximum possible recovery for you.
Most victims of dog bites are bitten by dogs of friends and neighbors and are reluctant to seek compensation. They often do not want to sue their neighbors and friends. However, dog bite claims are often covered by dog owner liability insurance, homeowners insurance or renters insurance which means that the dog owner often will not have any out of pocket expenses to pay for your injuries.
Our firm has successfully represented and obtained fair compensation for dog bite victims. Give us a call today at 925.459.8440 to speak with one of our attorneys and to schedule an appointment.
