Dog Bites

California has statutes that apply specifically to dog owners. These statutes indicate that the owner can be held accountable if their dog causes harm to another person. At the Law Office of Mark Cohen, P.C., in Fremont, California, I have more than 33 years of experience using California’s laws to help dog bite victims get the compensation they deserve. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a dog or other animal attack, I can help.

The Issue Of Insurance In Dog Bite Cases

Getting compensation in a dog bite case often comes down to finding insurance coverage. When the dog owner is also a homeowner the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy will usually provide coverage. But what if the dog owner does not have homeowner’s insurance?

If the dog owner does not have insurance coverage, then other avenues of coverage must be explored. Where do the dog and its owner live? Does the dog owner live with his or her parents who have insurance coverage? Does the dog owner rent an apartment or home? If so, was the landlord aware of the dog’s presence and its dangerous disposition? Will the landlord’s insurance provide coverage?

These are just a few examples of questions unique to dog bite cases which a lawyer must explore. My experience in raising the right questions, getting answers and understanding how insurance coverage works in dog bite cases has enabled me to get compensation for my clients who have been the unfortunate victims of a dog bite.

I Take Your Dog Bite Claim Personally

When I represent you in your dog bite case, you can expect my personal attention from the beginning of the file through its final resolution. “I take your case personally.” You will not be handed off to a paralegal or other legal assistant. By thoroughly understanding what you are going through, I am better able to serve your best interests.

I understand that a dog bite injury can be serious. More often than not, the damage involves cuts that may result in scars. However, if a dog knocks a person over, it can result in more serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Back, neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Head and brain injuries

For these injuries and more, I will seek full and fair compensation on your behalf, so that you can have peace of mind and continue on with your life.
