Dog Bite Injuries in Lancaster can Have Catastrophic Effects
The Los Angeles area, including Lancaster, leads the nation in dog bites and attacks. In fact, 2015 saw 74 attacks on postal workers alone, with even higher numbers for children and other adults.
Not only do dog bites result in physical pain, they can also involve feelings of terror, intense fear, anxiety and insecurity. The owner of the out-of-control dog should be held financially responsible for those physical and emotional scars.
Dog Attack Victims Should Not Have to Pay
Especially in the case of children, the injuries can be immense, often leading to a long-lasting fear of dogs throughout their lives. But no matter whether the dog attack involves a small child or a fully grown adult, the victim should not have to pay for the medical and therapy bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages that such savagery can bring on.
Our Lancaster injury lawyers have hundreds of dog bite and dog attack cases under our belts. We’ve been doing this since 1971, helping victims in Lancaster get the compensation they deserve after such a devastating attack. It’s indisputable that there is a huge emotional and psychological toll involved in dog bite cases, and we aim to help you ease the financial burden that comes with it all.
It’s not YOUR dog that caused facial injuries to your child. It’s not YOUR dog that mauled your wife. Why should it be YOUR responsibility to pay for it all? Let us help you target the party or parties responsible for your dog bite and get you the monetary reward you deserve.

Who Will Provide For Your Family?
Take this example: you are a postal worker horribly injured by a vicious dog along your route. You are in the hospital for a few days, perhaps requiring surgery. If the injury is severe and affects one of your limbs, you’ll need ongoing physical therapy. You have to miss days, weeks or even more of work. If you aren’t compensated, who will put food on the table for your family? Should it come out of your pocket?
No way. That’s why you should call Kuzyk Law.
Think the insurance company will cover you? Wrong again.
Their standard business model for private insurance is to get you the bare minimum that may be just enough for immediate medical expenses and nothing else. You’ll need much more to cover the costs of ongoing therapy, and maybe even plastic surgery if the scarring affects the face.
At Kuzyk Law, we fight for your full compensation to cover current and future medical bills, physical therapy and surgeries, and pain and suffering. As the injured victim, you can seek 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.
You can also tap into the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance policy which may cover dog bites and dog attacks, with many policies offering between $100,000 and $300,000 of coverage. It’s possible that some dog owners could have coverage up to many millions of dollars.

If so, you need a shrewd, experienced Lancaster dog bite attorney who knows the intricacies of the legal and insurance systems to get you the final payout you deserve.
The state of California has a “strict liability statute,” which means that owners are responsible for the actions of their dogs. The California Civil Code Section 3342 clearly states: “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.”
Even landlords can be held accountable for personal injury cases involving tenants who were allowed to keep a dangerous dog on the premises.
The key is to act right away. Call the Lancaster dog bite attorneys who can help you: Kuzyk Law.
