Orange County, California Lawyer Explores Importance Of Hiring Professional Dog Bite Attorney

January 08, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Orange County, California based Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer is issuing a public advisory about the importance of hiring a professional personal injury lawyer when dealing with dog bite cases in California. The firm also points out that hiring an experienced attorney helps victims secure a fair amount of compensation and ensures that dog owners will be held accountable due to their negligence.

According to a study from the Center For Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care. The US population is approximately 325.7 million people as of 2017, which means means a dog bites 1 out of every 69 people.

“Being attacked by a dog, regardless of whether it has caused a serious physical injury or not, can be a very traumatizing experience, especially for little children. If you or any of your loved ones were permanently disfigured or psychologically traumatized due to a dog attack incident, it is imperative that you hire a professional attorney so you can get the maximum compensation that you and your family deserves,” says Alexander D. Napolin from Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer. He asserts that hiring a personal injury lawyer for dog bite is the best course of action after a dog attack incident because an attorney who is experienced in the field will know how to identify the true value of the case. Moreover, dog bite lawyers protect the interest of their clients as they assess and scrutinize offers from insurance companies in order to receive the best possible settlement.

“It might be tempting to immediately accept offers from the at fault party’s insurance company during the initial negotiation stage. However, you should take note that insurance companies will always try to offer you the least possible amount of compensation,” says Napolin. He explains that some injuries do not manifest immediately, and a number of costly complications after the attack could happen at any time.

The most frequently sustained injuries from dog attacks are puncture wounds and lacerations from the canine's teeth violently contacting the person's skin and extremities. Along with these types of open wounds comes bacterial infection or infectious disease, such as rabies, that result from the exposed punctures or lacerations. In addition to physical injuries, many victims of dog attacks also suffer from PTSD and other related symptoms, including intrusive memories, avoidance, negative mood swings, anxiety, irrational fears, recurring nightmares, total loss of sleep, and more. In addition to the obvious medical bills and follow-up care, victims might also need to undergo therapy and mental health care to help them return to a state of normalcy.

Meanwhile, as noted on the firm’s website, California's tough stance on dog attacks categorizes the region as a "strict liability" state. This means that the dog owner is held responsible for damages under these conditions: the injury resulted from being bitten and not a scratch or other injury, or the bite occurred while in a public place or lawfully on private property. It is very difficult for a pet owner to escape liability if their dog bites someone. Under this statute, the pet owner is liable even if the dog has no history of aggressive behavior, the owner had no idea the dog could become aggressive, and the owner took reasonable measures to prevent the incident.
