Dog Bites

Attorneys in Sonoma County: Dog Attacks

In California, dog owners are held strictly liable for any damage caused by their pets. The owner of a dog that bites someone for the first time is just as liable as someone who knows a dog is dangerous.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, our lawyers can help. We will work hard to see that you get fair compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and any other costs incurred because of an animal attack.

We will look after you

At the Law Office of Joshua Katz, we believe that individualized attention is important. We take the time to learn about the impact that being a dog bite victim has had on your life. You can count on us to listen to you. You can count on us to do what is right for you.

We handle dog bite cases, including those involving victims being attacked in public parks, private residences, outside of businesses and elsewhere. Whether a dog attack resulted in scars, broken bones, other serious personal injuries or the wrongful death of a family member, we will be here for you.

All types of dogs can cause harm. While breeds such as a Pit Bull and Rottweiler are commonly thought to be the animals responsible for most injuries, we have seen that smaller breeds can also do serious damage. We help all dog bite victims.

We believe in the value of taking cases to court. While we will certainly strive for an out-of-court settlement, we will make it clear that we are willing take appropriate cases to trial. We want the defense to understand how serious we are. We want them to give you the compensation you deserve.
