Dog Attacks

Dog Bites: How Haffner & Morgan Can Help

Injured in a dog attack? The attorneys at Haffner & Morgan have years of experience in helping the victims of dog bites get compensated. We provide free initial consultations and all of our dog attack cases are taken on a contingency (no recovery, no fee) basis.

Common Causes of Dog Attacks and Injuries

Dogs may bite for a variety of reasons. Often, biting is a response in reaction to an environmental factor. Some common causes of dog bites include:

  • Tethered and chained dogs
  • Poorly trained or unsocialized dogs
  • Negligence on part of the owner
  • Injured dog
  • Abused dog

What You Should Do if You’re Attacked By a Dog:

California has specific dog leash laws in place that are meant to prevent dog attacks from happening, but unfortunately dog bites still occur. After a dog bite you may be entitled to  compensation for medical costs, lost wages from missing work, pain and suffering, and emotional damage from the attack.

We also think it’s important to note that if you were bitten by a friend’s or neighbor’s dog, dog bite claims are typically filed against the dog owner’s renters or homeowners insurance company, not the individual dog owner. Dogs who don’t have a history of aggression will rarely face the chance of having to be put down.

The attorneys at Haffner & Morgan can help you in both your financial and physical recovery. Consultations are available at no cost to you, and no fees are taken unless you obtain a settlement or positive jury verdict. Not every situation requires legal representation, but we are always here to answer your questions.
