Animal Bite Injuries

Holding Owners of Vicious Dogs Accountable in Redwood City, California

Dog Bites When people keep dogs and other animals as pets, they need to keep an eye out for the safety of others. Whether that involves training the animal or keeping it restricted within a specific area, California law makes such efforts a necessary part of animal ownership.

Seeking Compensation for Serious Injuries

Due to widespread dog ownership, dog bites are the single largest source of animal-related injuries. Dog bites can have painful and long-term consequences, including but not limited to:

  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Infection and amputation
  • Psychological trauma

Other types of animal attacks can also have serious consequences. The San Jose dog bite attorneys at our firm work with top-notch expert professionals to evaluate the extent of our clients’ injuries and the lifetime economic and non-economic damages associated with those injuries.

Enforcing California’s Strict Liability Laws

In California, owners of dogs and other animals have strict liability for injuries that occur due to bites and other injuries their animals inflict on other people. That means that if you are injured due to an animal bite, the owner is presumed to have been negligent in allowing the incident to happen.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
