Dog Bite Lawyer

Bakersfield, California

People who have never been attacked by a dog may consider a dog bite to be a relatively minor issue. However, victims of dog bites know better. Many dog bites result in serious personal injury for California residents.  Even those that are minor can cause significant trauma and a lifetime of emotional distress.  Bakersfield dog bite lawyer Mickey Fine knows how devastating animal attacks can be.

In the state of California, dog bites are a strict liability issue. This means that no matter what circumstances surround your attack, if you were bitten by a dog, the owner is responsible for all of your medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering. It is important to speak to Mr. Fine if you or a loved one was bitten by a dog and seriously injured.

Dog Bite Lawsuits

Over 4.7 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, yet only a small percentage of these victims receives compensation from an insurance company. Many people are hesitant to file a claim because they fear anger or resentment from a neighbor or friend. However, it isn’t the dog owner who pays for animal attacks, it’s his insurance company.

Although homeowner’s insurance covers dog bites, insurance adjustors often only offer a portion of what you can obtain through legal action. At the Law Offices of Mickey Fine, we will fight for your rights and seek to get you several times what an insurance adjustor offers.

Mickey Fine is prepared to handle dog bite lawsuits for injuries including:

  • Infection
  • Disfigurement
  • Puncture wounds
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering

You deserve better than what the insurance companies are willing to pay. We are prepared to take your case as far as necessary to see that you are provided the full compensation you are due.
