- Immediate psychological trauma
- Severe physical injuries including puncture wounds
- Physical scarring that can require multiple reconstructive surgeries
- Inability to work resulting in lost wages
- Expensive Medical Bills
Seeking fair compensation isn’t about attacking owner of the dog, its about getting your life back on track. It can be a difficult decision to make if the owner of the animal is a friend, neighbor, acquaintance or if the animal has been friendly and approachable with you in the past.
These situations should be handled delicately by a compassionate attorney who understands the trauma and physical pain you have suffered and who understands the law. California law holds the owner(s) of vicious animals that have bitten, attacked, mauled or killed responsible for the actions of their animals. Financially, you can seek:
- Pain and Suffering awards for emotional trauma
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses for physical scarring
- Lost wages
Under the FTCA — Federal Tort Claims — there is a statute of limitations of two years from the date of the injury or accidents to file a civil claim so its crucial that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as you possible can after being attacked.
