Dog Bites Bakersfield
Negligent and abusive dog owners should be held responsible for the injuries that they may cause. Dog bite victims are at risk for infection from disease/bacteria carried by the dog. Thus, victims often require serious and expensive medical attention, as well as antibiotics. Sometimes, emergency medical transport is necessary following an animal attack. Our personal injury attorneys will fight for your full and fair compensation for any injuries you may have suffered in one of these situations, including:
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Nerve damage
- Eye injuries
- Severe infections, such as rabies
- Amputation of fingers and nose
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones from falling due to an attack
- Psychological trauma
If you are not medically insured, contact our personal injury attorney immediately to protect your health. Treatment may be expensive and impossible to get without medical coverage, and our firm may arrange for medical expenses to be paid for once a settlement is reached. We will arrange your treatment regardless of the cost or extent. You do not have to pay our firm until a settlement has been reached in your favor, based on our contingent fee.
