Our first step is to provide a free initial consultation, where we discuss your case and all your legal options.

Can I still pursue a claim if the dog didn't bite me, but caused me to fall or get injured some other way?

Absolutely. In California, a dog owner can be held liable if their dog causes an injury other than a bite; this includes knocking you down or causing you to have an accident. It’s important to note these types of cases can be more complex, since they often require demonstrating sufficient negligence on the part of the dog’s owner.
This is where we at Braff come into play. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case, and we operate on a contingency fee basis — this means you don’t pay a dime until we win your case. We’re available for you 24/7 to offer advice and superior representation, fully tailored to your unique situation.

What happens if the dog owner refuses to provide their insurance information?

If the dog owner refuses to provide their insurance information after a dog bite incident, this can make the process more challenging – but certainly not impossible. At Braff Law Offices, we’ve handled many cases where the dog owner was uncooperative. Nonetheless, we can use legal measures to obtain the necessary information, and if necessary, we can take your case to court. We’re not just your personal injury law firm; we’re your formidable ally in this process. And you don’t have to go through this alone: just fill out our online form or call us – we’re here for you 24/7.
At Braff, we’re tough, strategic negotiators who do not hesitate to use our demonstrated track record of success when confronting unreasonable dog owners or their insurers.

Dog Bite Personal Injury Attorneys in California

Watch Out

After a dog bite incident, it's essential to remember that the other party's insurance company is not on your side. These companies usually act swiftly, attempting to settle claims quickly (and for as little money as possible). Although their offers may seem attractive in the immediate aftermath of an accident, they often fall short of covering the full extent of your medical costs, lost wages and emotional trauma. At Braff, we're skilled in handling insurance companies successfully and we’re dedicated to fighting for your rightful compensation. So be cautious, don't rush into accepting an offer, and never provide a statement without first consulting us. We're here anytime 24/7 to help guide you successfully throughout this process.

Dog Bites Injury Claims FAQ

California has strict liability laws for dog bites. This means dog owners are liable for damages if their dog bites someone, even if the dog never bit anyone before (or displayed any aggressive tendencies). These laws are complex, so dealing with them on your own can be challenging. At Braff Law Offices, we’re familiar with the dog bite incident legal landscape and can guide you every step of the way. You don’t have to worry about any upfront fees: we operate on a contingency fee basis, so you don’t pay a dime until we win your case.

Dog bites can indeed lead to a delicate situation when the dog’s owner is your friend or neighbor. It’s important to remember that when you file a dog bite claim, you’re typically dealing with their insurance company – not them directly. As your personal injury law firm, Braff is here to navigate you all the way through this delicate process. We understand your need to maintain personal relationships, so we offer 24/7 availability to discuss your case for free. This way, we ensure your rights are protected while preserving your personal relationships.
Despite every case being different, our Bellflower, Santa Paula, Delano and El Monte personal injury lawyers handle every situation with the same intense focus and determination – always with the priorities of our clients in mind.

California dog bite law generally applies even if the dog was provoked, but this can influence the outcome of a case. It’s important to note every situation is unique. At Braff Law, we’ll help you understand all the specific circumstances surrounding your case and steer you on the best course of action. With us, you’re getting more than legal representation; you’re getting a dedicated case manager committed to your unique case.

In California, you generally have two years from the date of the dog bite to file a lawsuit. This period, known as the “statute of limitations”, can vary based on specific circumstances. Given the complexity of the legal system, having Braff Law Offices on your side ensures you don’t miss any critical deadline. So reach out to us today – fill out our online form or call us for a free consultation now.

California law generally holds dog owners liable for dog bites. However, if the dog that bit you is either a stray or doesn’t have a known owner, compensation is still possible from other sources (such as local government entities). This is a complex area of personal injury law, so it’s important to consult our experienced personal injury lawyers at Braff Law Firm immediately.

If the dog owner’s insurance company contacts you directly, it’s best not to discuss the incident with them without first consulting us. Remember, insurance companies try to minimize payouts. This is why we’re experienced in dealing with insurance companies and strive to ensure your rights are fully protected. We’re tough, tactical negotiators, and we will not hesitate to leverage our proven winning record when handling stubborn insurance companies for you.
