A recent report by the CDC reveals that nearly five million Americans become the victim of dog bite attacks every year. Medical expenses from a dog bite can be overwhelming, and permanent scarring can wreak havoc on a person’s quality of life.

Unique California Liability Laws
California has very strict liability laws that apply to dog owners. In many other states, pet owners are directly responsible for their animals’ actions and attacks, and personal injury cases that seek compensation from a pet owner typically must provide proof that there was negligence in order to be successful. However, California does things a little differently.
When a dog attacks someone in California, the owner of that dog is automatically held responsible for any injuries that resulted from that attack. There is no burden of proof on the part of the victim, and the only question is how much compensation is considered reasonable. Avrek Law Firm’s dog bite attorneys in Bakersfield know how to work with all parties to come up with a settlement that is both fair and timely.
