Sonoma County Dog Bite Law Firm
Dogs are known as affectionate, loyal companions. This is usually for good reason. Unfortunately, dogs do bite or attack individuals. Children are all too often the victims of dog attacks. When a dog bites a child’s face, neck or head, the child may need cosmetic or reconstructive surgery in addition to other surgeries. Whether it is a child or an adult, dog bites can cause lasting physical and emotional trauma. If you or your child has been bitten or attacked by a dog, it is important to work with a knowledgeable lawyer.
The law firm of Teal & Montgomery is here for you. Since 1975, our firm has helped families and individuals across Northern California injured by another’s negligence. We handle all sorts of injury claims. There is no such thing as a small case at our firm. If we agree to represent you, you can be sure that we will devote all the time, attention and resources necessary to achieve a favorable result in your case.
Under California law, dog owners are strictly liable for dog bites. This means that if you were bitten by a dog, you do not have to prove the dog owner’s liability. Liability is presumed. The only exception to this law is if you were unlawfully on the dog owner’s private property. Even though liability is generally not an issue in dog bite claims, damages often are. Our law firm will take careful steps to prove your medical expenses, past and future lost income and pain and suffering. Most dog bite claims are eventually resolved in settlement negotiations. If the opposing party is unwilling to treat you fairly, our lawyers will be ready to resolve the matter in the courtroom.
