Californians seem to love dogs. In the most recent survey done by Dogtime.com nearly 40% of California households own at least one dog. Many of us are convinced that pet ownership is good for their health and in an increasingly complex world having a dog or cat provides a ready companion. We love our pets so much we often consider them to be a part of the family.
What happens when a loving pet suddenly attacks someone? Dog bite injuries can become so severe that reconstructive surgeries are needed and thousands of dollars in medical bills are sustained. In extreme cases the dog bite can be fatal. Knowing this, it’s important to know the facts behind dog bites and should an attack occur why you should retain an experienced dog bite attorney. Experience with cases like this can make all the difference.

In 2017 (the last years we have statistics for) California accounted for more than 475 of State Farms over 3500 claims and this resulted in over $18 million in payments.
