California Dog Bite


Under California Civil Code Section 3342, otherwise known as the Dog Bite Statute, a dog owner is strictly liable for any injuries caused by his or her dog. This means that the dog owner does not need to have knowledge of his or her dog’s dangerous propensities. They are simply liable for the dog’s actions, even if it is the first time the dog has attacked.

Dog bites and attacks can have physical, emotional and financial impact on all aspects of your life. Our Southern California dog bite attorneys have the knowledge of the law and are prepared to fight for your legal rights.

What To Do After a Dog Bite or Attack

If you or a loved one is attacked or bitten by a dog, you need to take certain important actions to protect your legal rights. Our attorneys have outlined some of the more important steps that you need to take, including:

  1. Identify the dog that bit you.
  2. Identify the dog’s owner. Obtain the owner’s information, including name, address, and telephone number.
  3. Get the name, address, and telephone number of any witnesses to the attack. Generally, dog owners will deny an attack or a bite, fearing that their dog might be taken away or put to sleep. In such cases, a witness statement or testimony will be imperative in getting you the compensation that you deserve.
  4. Contact Animal Services Agency or Law Enforcement to file an incident report.
  5. Take photographs of your wounds, bruises, and clothing.
  6. Obtain medical treatment.
  7. Contact the Law Offices of Samer Habbas.

To fully protect your rights, you should avoid doing the following:

  1. Sign any documents prepared by the dog owner, landlord of the property where the bite took place, insurance representatives, or adverse attorneys.
  2. Not seek medical treatment.

Dealing with a car accident and the insurance procedures that follow is stressful enough. Samer and his team have take care of all the details and made this whole experience as painless as possible.

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
