Dog Bite Attorney


Victims of dog bites are often left physically injured and emotionally traumatized. It’s not uncommon for dog bite victims to sustain serious, painful, and debilitating injuries, such as scarring, lacerations, puncture wounds, broken or fractured bones, infections, permanent disfigurement, and sometimes even death.

Unfortunately, children are the most frequent victims of dog bites or attacks. Because of their small size, dog bite injuries sustained by children are often much more severe than those sustained by adults. If you or your child has been attacked or bitten by a dog, we can help. The dog bite lawyers at Amicus Legal Group are very experienced, and can help you take the right steps to recover damages for your injuries.

California Dog Bite Law


In California, dog owners are held responsible if their dog bites or attacks another person. The law states that, unless the victim was trespassing or committing a crime when the dog attacked, the dog owner will be held responsible for any injury, even if the dog doesn’t have a prior history of aggressive behavior.

At Amicus Legal Group, we are committed to helping dog bite victims seek compensation in court for their damages. Our attorneys can help you figure out how much your case is worth, and then work aggressively to ensure you get the money you deserve. We are committed to providing you with personal service during this difficult time, and nothing is more important to us than helping you recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical treatment, lost wages, lost earning capacity, emotional trauma, and decreased quality of life.
