Dog Attacks & Bites
Injured in a Dog Attack?
Every year across the United States, thousands of people are injured by
dog bites and in dog attacks, requiring some form of medical attention.
In some instances, these attacks are very gruesome and result in injuries
that cause lifelong medical complications, scarring, and severe disfigurement.
Victims may also suffer from major psychological trauma, and develop anxiety,
a lifelong fear of dogs, and other issues.
If you were the victim of an attack by a dog that another individual owned,
why should you have to bear the financial burden of medical expenses,
lost wages, and other costs for something that was not your fault? You
shouldn't have to, and our Palm Springs dog bite lawyers are here
to make sure you are justly compensated. We fight to make sure that you
recover medical costs, treatments, and missed wages.

Determining Dog Owner Liability
When a dog attacks and injures another individual, California law applies
"strict liability" to the owner. This means that they cannot
dispute who was at fault in the situation and are held fully responsible
for paying any resulting damages, as long as the victim was not a trespasser
or provoking the dog.
Having an experienced team of injury attorneys take on your claim can significantly
improve the chances of a successful claim. Our team at Gilbert & Bourke
has an extensive track record of success in dog bite cases, and is well-prepared
