Dog Bites

For nearly two decades, The Law Offices of Derek Lim has been assisting victims of dog bite accidents. It is critical to obtain guidance from a skilled personal injury attorney regarding your injuries. Dog bites can cause lasting physical damage and scarring that can become worse if not properly treated. Of course, money cannot treat your injuries, but it can assist in alleviating your financial situation. In addition, you can obtain some semblance of justice and hold the responsible party accountable.

Contact us online to learn how we can help you recover compensation for your animal attack injury. Our experienced and creative personal injury lawyers servicing our Fremont and San Francisco offices can help you determine what avenues you can take to obtain the verdict and compensation you need.

A Proven Attorney Assisting With Dog Attack Liability

Responsibility for a dog bite in California is based on strict liability. This means that no evidence of past aggression is needed in most cases. The statue can be found here. It should be noted that the injury must have been caused by a bite and not from another type of injury caused by a dog, such as a push or scratch.

Many people do not realize this, but here are ways for certain individuals such as landlords to avoid liability. This makes it necessary to speak with a knowledgeable attorney to build the best case for your recovery based on the unique circumstances of your situation.

We will work with you to hold all negligent parties accountable for the damages you have incurred.

Gathering Evidence for Your Case

At our law firm, we work hard to ensure that all the evidence is collected properly to build you a solid case for recovery. It is important to have your evidence organized and maintained by a professional as minor errors can potentially jeopardize your entire case. You can assist in the success of your claims by properly identifying the dog that bit you as well as taking any pictures you can of the animal and the injuries it caused.

We will also investigate the matter by talking to witnesses and analyzing the facts of the case. Maintaining transparency throughout the process is perhaps one, if not the most, important component of constructing your case. A detailed and evidence-based presentation can be the key to achieving your desired verdict. You can rely on our experience and adept analytical skills to craft a strong and persuasive case and lead you to the results you deserve.
