Dog Bites in San Francisco

Dogs are a bright light in many people's lives. They serve as companionship, entertainment and, for many, a sense of protection for themselves, their family and their home. There are, however, cases where these pets can become unruly and out of control resulting in  dog bites. When not properly trained, they can attack innocent bystanders, leaving disfigurements, painful injuries, and in some cases, death.

While owning a dog is a popular endeavor, many fail to understand the full and complete responsibility when taking such an animal into their care. Without the proper investment of time and money, these animals become disobedient and a danger to not only their family, but the people around them. This situation becomes even more detrimental when a child becomes involved. While the physical injuries themselves are often painful enough, the scarring sometimes lasting up to a lifetime, the emotional trauma that one suffers from such an attack can even be worst. An animal that once was a joy in their life can become a source of apprehension, worry and terror.

Representation for Dog Bite Injury Sufferers

After going through such a painful attack, it is normal for someone to feel confused, overwhelmed and frightened. At Bostwick and Peterson LLP , we understand that the last thing you will want to do is go head to head with the big insurance companies to recover compensation for all of your losses. With all the stress you will be under, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced San Francisco personal injury lawyer  to help you work towards gaining your maximum monetary compensation.

While the financial strain put on your wallet to cover such things as medical bills is an important part of what we will consider when evaluating your case, we also recognize that the non-physical losses are often times just as important. When working towards securing this desired result, it's important to realize that insurance companies are nothing but a business and they do not have your best interests at heart. If you attempt to negotiate on your own, it is likely that your case will be denied, delayed or settled for much less than the preferred value. It is important that you work with a skilled lawyer to help you on your way to getting the compensation you deserve so you can begin to recovery and rebuilding your life.

If you or a loved one has recently been a victim of a dog bite, contact a San Francisco personal injury attorney  today to help protect your rights and fight for your future.
