Preserving evidence to support your CA dog bite claim
The most important aspect of prosecuting a California dog attack case is to secure evidence as quickly as possible. We have our investigator on the scene, usually within an hour of notification, in order to gather and preserve evidence. The best evidence to gather is to obtain the identity of the dog and its owner, photographs of the dog, identity of witnesses, witness statements, and photographs of the injuries and location of the attack.

California ranks top for dog bites
It may surprise you that California is ranked first in the nation in fatal dog attacks. Insurers nationwide pay out over $1 billion in claims related to animal bites annually. One-third of the money paid out through homeowners' liability claims are related to dog attacks.
At Bisnar | Chase, our Orange County Dog Bite Attorneys handle numerous California dog bite cases each year. We can use our knowledge and experience to represent you and achieve results. In our experience the most dangerous month for dog attacks is August. The days are long, it's been hot for months, the gardeners are coming and going and children are generally home from school; a dangerous combination.
What you need to show to have a solid case:
- The defendant owned the dog
- The dog bit the plaintiff
- The plaintiff was lawfully on the premises where the dog bite took place
- The dog bite caused the plaintiff injuries
Once these prerequisites are met, further action can be taken. A skilled dog bite lawyer can put all the facts of the case together to attain fair compensation for you. We've have had dog bite cases where the at-fault party (or their insurance company) offered a few thousand dollars but through our pre-litigation negotiations we were able to collect much more for our clients.
