Dog Owners Are Responsible

California has strict laws that clearly state that pet owners are responsible for their animals' behavior. Every year, thousands of Californians suffer injuries due to dog bites and other pet attacks. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we take dog bites and animal attacks seriously. Many of our dog bite injury clients have suffered from painful wounds, infections, scarring, disfigurement, numerous surgeries, hospitalization, extensive rehabilitation, and psychological trauma.

Any Dog Could Bite

While a dog may be man's best friend, not all dogs can be trusted. Owners are often negligent, either by failing to properly restrain their animals or by failing to report previous bites or a dog's history of aggressive, vicious, or dangerous behavior. Any dog — not just certain breeds — can bite and cause serious physical and emotional scars that can last a lifetime. This is especially true when the victims are small children and young people with many years still ahead of them.

Injuries Are Often Serious

Dog bites often cause serious muscle and tissue damage and scarring. There is also a concern about diseases that dogs can pass to humans when their teeth break the skin. If you or your loved one have been bitten by a dog, report the incident to authorities and contact San Jose dog bite lawyer John J. Garvey, III. Allow us the opportunity to help you in your recovery of compensation for your injuries, including the following:

  • Pit bull attack injuries
  • German shepherd bites
  • Tissue injuries
  • Scarring
  • Chronic pain
  • Psychological trauma (which may require counseling)
  • Muscle damage
  • Injuries that require reconstructive surgery
  • Nerve damage

Preserve Your Right to Sue for Compensation

It is important to remember to get the name of the owner and the dog's license number, if possible, so that you can be compensated for your medical costs and other damages. Even if the dog's owner is a friend or family member, remember that insurance policies provide much-needed safety nets in such cases. Attorney John Garvey can advise you of your best options, ensuring that your rights and financial interests will be protected as you work to recover from a dog bite injury.
