Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Bites and Personal Injury in San Diego


I have been injured by a Dog Bite in San Diego, what information should I collect?

Make sure you get any and all personal and contact information about the person who hurt you as well as their insurance information including the company, the agent, and any applicable insurance policy numbers. Keep all documents relating to the dog bite whether they are police reports, witness statements and insurance documents. Take photos of you and anyone else’s injuries and the scene of the accident. We recommend that you not speak with the insurance company about the dog bite without speaking to a Personal Injury lawyer first. Insurance companies will “cherry pick” statements and selectively frame what you say to hurt you. This is the unfortunate truth.

I have been injured by a Dog Bite in San Diego, what should I do?

First and foremost, seek medical treatment immediately if you believe it is necessary. Document all injuries to the extent possible, via photographs, journals, and the preservation of medical records. Make sure you also speak with a Dog Bite and Personal Injury attorney as soon as possible to have your case evaluated and set forth a plan to move forward.
