Make A Successful Claim After A Dog Bite Injury

Dog bites and other animal attacks can have serious consequences. Victims of these attacks often require multiple invasive surgical procedures before their wounds can heal, and many are left with permanent scarring and disfigurement, as well as substantial psychological harm.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, our Ventura dog bite attorneys at the law firm of Hiepler & Hiepler can help. Our firm is experienced at helping adult and child dog bite victims obtain fair compensation from dog owners and their insurance companies.

What Role Does Insurance Play?

Dogs are powerful and potentially dangerous animals — whether or not they belong to breeds that are popularly regarded as vicious. Dog owners have a responsibility to train their dogs and take all other reasonable measures to protect the general public from dog attacks.

Our firm has a track record of pursuing personal injury claims against dog owners and obtaining compensation for the long-term injuries suffered by dog bite victims.

In California, homeowners insurance policies cover dog bites — including those taking place away from the covered property — unless they are specifically excluded. Our attorneys have the insurance experience to identify whether insurance coverage is available in your case. We will dig deeply in search of a source of financial support for you after a dog bite injury.
