Are You a Dog Bite Victim?
Contusions…permanent disfigurement…emotional and psychological suffering…these all stem from vicious dog bites and dog attacks by animals who are not properly trained and restrained by their owners. Through no fault your own, you have endured not only the physical trauma but also emotional terror, intense fear, and anxiety associated with the attack.
Don’t take this lying down. There’s something you can do, and Kuzyk Law can help.

After obtaining medical attention, your next call should be to your Palmdale dog bite attorneys, Kuzyk Law.
There’s no time to lose.
Dog Bite Injuries in Palmdale Can Have Tragic Effects
Did you know that the metro Los Angeles area, including Palmdale, is #1 in the country for dog bites and attacks? Among postal workers alone in 2015, 74 dog attacks were recorded. This number doesn’t even begin to include the many children, teens and adults who are bitten savagely by dogs each year, often leading to long-term emotional and physical scarring.
Lean on our Palmdale injury lawyers to get you the settlement you deserve, backed by experience fighting for hundreds of dog bite and dog attack victims over more than 40 years. Why should you have to pay for the long-term damages that someone else’s dog imposed on you? Just remember, you’re never alone in your recovery. When you don’t have the voice to speak, we can be that voice. Put your faith in Kuzyk Law and we will go to battle for you.
Choose a Dog Bite Attorney with Dedicated Experience
Experience….shrewd attention to detail…unrelenting focus. Our dog bite attorneys have seen all manner of injuries from dog bites, and in some cases death.
Have you experienced any of these after a dog attack?
- Serious head and face injuries
- Deep contusions
- Long-term emotional scars
- Humiliation and Embarrassment
- Loss or impairment of the use of hands, arms, feet and legs
- Medical expenses, plastic surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy
- Loss of income, medical expenses and extreme pain
- Permanent Scars and Disfigurement
- Emotional and Psychological Suffering
- Nerve Injuries
If you answered yes to any of these, then you could be entitled to compensation. And we don’t mean the insurance company’s standard compensation for their insured clients. We mean above and beyond that basic payout to include damages for current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and therapy. The team at Kuzyk Law is not afraid of those insurance companies and will go toe to toe with them to get you the payout you deserve. Our proven personal injury attorneys boast more than four decades of experience, obtaining over $1 billion in settlements.
We have the law on our side when it comes to dog bite cases. According to the California Civil Code Section: “The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.” Thanks to this “strict liability statute,” owners are responsible for the actions of their dogs. Even landlords can be found responsible for their tenants who keep a dangerous dog on the premises.
We see it happen all too often: a child gets mauled by a dog and must have repeated surgeries to fix the problem so scars and more severe internal problems don’t persist; postal workers who are the sole source of income for their families can’t get to work because of ongoing therapy; young mothers experiencing fractures from a vicious dog attack as they try to shelter their babies from attack. The list is endless.
After an attack, you may feel overwhelmed with the emotional and physical burdens, but there is no time to wait. The sooner you call us to get the ball rolling, the better chances you’ll have of securing a monetary award for your injuries. A big part of this is to get check out by a doctor first and get all injuries photographed and documented. We will need these resources when it comes time to fight.
Often times, the situation doesn’t even have to escalate to a courtroom battle. Through friendly negotiation, we can obtain a settlement that will help immensely with your recovery.
You may be able to get compensation in dog bite cases for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, cost of surgeries, permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. The homeowner’s insurance policy of the dog owner may also cover dog bites and dog attacks thanks to policies of up to $300,000 of coverage and even up to millions of dollars.
But you must act right away. We are your Palmdale injury attorneys and we will be your ally.
