Los Angeles County Attorney to Represent Your Best Interests
Dog bites are not minor issues. They can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement.
Children and adults can sustain immediate pain and infections from dog bites as well
as long-term scarring and emotional trauma. We feel it is important to carefully
analyze every aspect of a dog bite case so that we can pursue all of the compensation
Like many states, California has no "free bite" rule. Whether a dog has bitten someone
before or not, state dog bite laws impose strict liability for economic damages on
owners for injuries suffered in an unprovoked attack. Did you know that we do not
have to prove the dog was ferocious? All we need to prove is that you did not aggravate
the animal. We have represented clients who were bit by Rottweilers, Pitt Bulls,
Chihuahua, Chows and other dogs. We will zealously seek justice in your case.
LIABILITY FOR AN ANIMAL ATTACK
California dog bite laws call for "strict liability" on the part of the animal owner.
That means if a dog bites you, that dog owner is responsible for your injuries, whether
the dog in question was in its own yard or was roaming the neighborhood. A dog owner's
liability for payment of medical treatment, lost income and other economic costs
in an attack are typically covered under their homeowner's liability insurance policy.
However, policy limits can require victims and their families to pursue lawsuits
for full and fair compensation. We have the background, access to professional resources
and experience to ensure you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve for
your dog bite injuries or those suffered by loved ones.
At the Law Office of Robert L. Starr, we represent people injured due to dog bites
and other premises liability incidents. A skilled dog bite attorney at our firm will
help you hold negligent dog owners and property owners responsible for injuries and
