Encino Dog Bite Attorneys
Helping Victims of Animal Attacks
While most dogs and other domesticated animals are cute and friendly, looks
can be deceiving and a simple pat on the head could actually result in
a serious bite or injury. In fact, according to the American Humane Society,
there are more than 4 million dog bites each year in the United States,
of which nearly 800,000 require serious medical treatment.
If you or a loved one have been involved in an animal attack and suffered
serious injuries, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for the
injuries you have suffered, medical bills you have incurred, and any other
out-of-pocket expenses related to the attack. At Vahdat & Aboudi,
APLC, our dog bite lawyers in Encino know and understand the California
laws regarding animal bites and attacks. We will aggressively fight for
your legal rights and help you get the compensation that you deserve.

California Dog Bite Law
Under California law, owners are strictly liable if their dog attacks and
injures another person. In other words, even if the owner was not negligent
and their dog has never bitten before, they may still be liable for the
injuries you sustained as a result of their dog’s attack. California
Civil Code section 3342 is the statute that addresses such liability stemming
from a dog bite or attack.
