Walnut Creek Dog Bite Lawyers

Legal Representation for Victims of Dog Attacks and Bite Injuries

beware of dog sign The minutes, hours and days following a dog bite attack can be overwhelming. More than likely, you have multiple questions racing through your mind, such as:

  • How am I going to pay for these injuries?
  • Who is responsible?
  • Will recovery even be possible?
  • Do I have any legal options?

Get Financial Compensation for Your Injuries

Take heart, because you have options and help is available through Balamuth Law. Dog bites, no matter how small the animal, can be catastrophic. They can leave you, or your loved one, with limb loss, terrible lacerations, permanent disfigurement, and even severe disability. Above all, being attacked by a dog can leave you emotionally scarred and unable to be in the presence of another pet - sometimes even your own! However, you need not suffer this attack alone. As a victim, you have the right to seek financial compensation from those responsible for the dog's behavior. While this may not undo the damage that has been done, it can help you overcome the immediate financial obstacles and even some of the long term complications, like:

  • Medical bills
  • Specialist care
  • Physical and emotional therapy
  • Property damage
  • Loss of wages

But don't delay. Personal injury claims, especially involving dog bite attacks, must be initiated and investigated as soon as possible. Such claims are won and lost within the first few days - when evidence is fresh, witness statements are clear, and official reports are handy. The longer you wait to come forward, the harder it will be to secure the compensation your family deserves.

I've Been Bitten By A Dog - What Should I Do?

Provided you have not already been taken to the emergency room, or sought out critical care, we highly recommend speaking with a qualified doctor as soon as possible. Not only will a medical professional be able to treat your wounds and catch any potential infections, they will be able to provide a much needed medical report to back up any claim you make in the future.

Additionally, you should contact the authorities almost immediately after the attack. This includes the police as well as your local animal control. They will provide you with an official report, which you will need should you pursue a claim at a later date. Finally, record and photograph every piece of evidence you believe to be vital to the incident - your injuries, the dog itself, the surrounding area, etc. Keep a journal or log of the time after the attack so you don't forget any crucial details.

The attorneys at Balamuth Law understand the severity of these types of attacks and stand ready to help dog bite victims obtain the maximum amount of compensation that they deserve.

Don't let a negligent dog owner walk away while you suffer with injuries inflicted by their out of control animal. Get the justice you deserve and the compensation you need by calling our office today. The number is (888) 254-1234.
