We Help Dog Bite Victims Recover
Under California's dog bite law, dog owners are strictly liable for any harm caused by their animals. There are very few exceptions to this law. Victims can recover damages even if the animal had no prior history of attacks.
At Ashton & Price, we know California's dog bite statute and we help people who have been injured in Sacramento area animal attacks to recover fair compensation. Our attorneys offer more than four decades of combined personal injury litigation experience, and since 1996 have recovered more than $100 million in settlements and jury awards for our clients. We are ready to help you fight to protect your rights and recover your life.
It doesn't matter whether you were injured by a horse, an exotic pet or someone's cat — if a "domesticated" animal has attacked and injured you or your child, the animal's owner is subject to the same strict liability standard imposed by California's dog bite law. To protect your right to recover damages, contact our Sacramento area law offices.
Medical Care for Dog Bite Injuries
Although our primary focus is on obtaining fair compensation for our clients, we also help our clients get proper medical care* from many of the best providers in the Sacramento area. This is true even for those clients who don't have health insurance and those who can't afford to pay any out-of-pocket expenses.
After you get an accurate diagnosis, receive the right medical care, and have recovered from the attack — we will aggressively negotiate with the responsible party and/or their insurance carrier to pursue fair and just compensation for your injuries and damages.
