Asserting Strict Liability in a Dog Bite Accident in San Diego

The rabies virus from a dog bite can kill a person in four days. Symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, sudden change in behavior can appear within two weeks. A person bitten by a rabid dog needs immediate vaccination and further medical treatment to prevent the rabies virus from reaching the brain.

If you or your loved one has suffered injuries from a dog bite in San Diego, you may consult with a San Diego Dog Bite Attorney to help you recover damages.

Only seasoned Personal Injury attorney in San Diego can help you prove that the dog owner has liability over your injuries.

They can help you prove strict liability by:

 1. Establishing that the dog owner has a responsibility to implement safety measures to prevent accident. Some examples are: posting warning sign, informing the public on its hazards, construction of safety facilities, vaccination, and regular tending.

The owner also has the responsibility to know the dangerous propensities of the dog, implement corrective measures upon learning the hazards, and protect the public from potential dog bite attack.

2. Proving that the dog owner has failed to fulfill such duty.

3. Establishing the causes of events, leading to accident.

4. Presenting evidence that the accident has led to your injuries.

Only reliable litigators will guide you throughout this legal process:

1.    Gathering of legal documents such as copy of police report, witness statements, and medical records
2.    Filing the lawsuit
3.    Pre-trial/ Mediation
4.    Trial
5.    Verdict
6.    Appeal

Consult with skilled attorneys who work with medical practitioners and professionals to provide expert analysis that can substantiate your case. It is also an advantage that you choose a law firm that offers contingency cases on a “no win-no fee” basis. This means that you pay only after we have won the case or recovered the claim.
