In California if you suffer a dog bite the law states that the dog owner is strictly liable to you for the injuries you have suffered.
In most other injury cases the person making the claim has the burden of proving it is someone else’s fault. In a dog bite lawsuit, on the other hand, the burden of proof is on the owner of the animal to try to establish that, for whatever reason, it is not his fault. Dog bites can leave terrible scarring both physically and psychologically. If a dog injured you, and you require plastic surgery, psychological counseling, or any other healthcare professional’s help in order for you to heal, the dog owner is responsible for the damage the dog has done. In many cases, there will be a homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy that will cover the claim.
Why Choose Joseph Rosenblit?
What distinguishes my work from many other attorneys are two characteristics. First, I have made it my mission to listen carefully to my clients, respond quickly to their needs and to be there for them in a way that holds their interests above all others, including myself. Any situation that arises I will be available to respond quickly and effectively. I pride myself on caring enough about my clients, day or night, weekday or weekend, so that if they call I will do all in my power to help. That is my pledge to you.
Secondly, I have always brought a creative approach to litigation. A seemingly simple motor vehicle accident may, when one investigates deeper, lend itself to an allegation of an inherently dangerous roadside condition in the way the area was designed or even maintained. Unmarked dangerous curves or views obstructed by foliage are examples. If the injured party happens to be a senior citizen there may be a basis for alleging elder abuse violations. As an attorney with 25 years of experience in personal injury law I will look at all possibilities when I evaluate, investigate and ultimately litigate your case.
