In California, dog bite victims have extensive rights for compensation from the dog owner, even if it was the animal’s first offense. An experienced San Francisco dog bite lawyer can protect you and your family from being taken advantage of by uncooperative animal owners or unresponsive insurance companies.
A top priority after a dog bite is to receive immediate medical attention. Secondly, it’s important to contact animal control. They may take further measures against the dog depending on the severity of attack or other biting incidents in the dog’s past.

Risk of Dog Bites in San Francisco
If you are living in San Francisco, you should be aware of the kind of danger you are exposed to from animals, whether they are strays or pets. There are more insurance claims for dog bites in California than any other state in the U.S.
Animal attacks, especially with dogs, occur more frequently in the summer months when pet owners let their dogs run freely with no leash. The number of emergency visits to hospitals due to dog bites and other animal attacks has increased dramatically, and some of the attacks are vicious enough to cause permanent, irreversible damage.
