Settlements for Los Angeles Dog Bite Cases
When a person is bitten by a dog, he or she has the legal right to file a claim orlawsuitagainst the owner of the dog or whatever party was responsible for the incident. California personal injury law offers dog bite victims the opportunity to seek financial damages for their injuries, meant to cover medical bills and other items that will help the victim rebuild his or her life to a similar situation as to before the dog bite occurred.
The majority of dog bite claims throughout Los Angeles are resolved through negotiated settlements, outside of the courtroom. If the dog owner has homeowners' insurance, this will typically cover the victim's settlement, although additional resources for financial compensation may be sought. Depending on the particular case, the victim may be able to seek and recover a settlement that will include money for:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care
- Plastic or reconstructive surgery for scarring or disfigurement
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Future loss of earning potential
