Animal-Related Injuries

In California, the owners of animals may be responsible to pay for damages any time their animals cause accidents, injuries or property damage. If you or a loved one suffered injuries from any accident involving an animal, you are entitled to full, fair compensation from that animal's owner.

Different Kinds Of Animal Accidents

There are many different ways that animals can cause accidents and injuries, some of which are almost unique to Visalia and the Central California region. I have the experience and skill necessary to help you with:

  • Dog bites: Dog bites can cause disfigurement, dangerous infections and long-lasting psychological damage. The dog's owner is liable to pay for any damage caused by a dog bite, and the owner should be able to receive coverage from his or her homeowners insurance.
  • Unruly dogs: Sometimes, dogs cause injuries just by being playful. We have successfully represented an individual who was severely injured when a dog ran under the wheels of his bicycle and caused him to fall.
  • Livestock/escaping cattle: Visalia, Fresno and surrounding counties are among the most productive agricultural regions in the world. Sometimes, livestock escapes. When lost, wandering cows can make their way to a road. They present a serious danger for drivers and have caused many serious car accidents.

Preserve Crucial Evidence, Act Quickly

Because your case will only be as strong as the evidence you have to support it, you should act quickly to preserve as much of that evidence as you can. Seek prompt medical attention for your injuries, and seek representation from an attorney as soon as possible. We will investigate the scene, contact accident reconstruction experts if necessary, and record crucial witness testimony.
