Fresno California Dog Bite Laws
Each state and city has their own set of dog bite laws. In California every dog that is involved in a bite is the "strict liability" of its owner. California has particularly severe laws concerning dog owners and their liability should their pet attack someone else.
Our Fresno dog bite attorneys will handle each aspect of your case, from investigating all of the details of the incident to obtaining financial damages from every party involved.
If the dog attack resulted in extremely serious injuries, punitive damages can be sought as well as the usual financial damages. Your Fresno dog bite attorney may also be able to recover damages from property owners, city and state officials, and anyone else involved in the dog attack.
The only condition for a dog bite case in California is that a dog attacked someone else and the attack resulted in some injury, even if only psychological injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured by a dog in the Fresno area contact our office for a free consultation.
