Have You Been Attacked by a Dog?
From serious facial injuries that require reconstructive surgery to critical nerve injuries, dog attacks can be severe, painful and unforgettable. Victims may suffer from physical scars of course, but they can also suffer from long-term psychological scars involving fear of dogs and even post traumatic stress disorder in the most severe attacks.
Your first visit should be to an emergency room or your doctor to document the incident. The next visit should be to Kuzyk Law.
It’s not right that you should have to pay for the physical trauma as well as emotional terror, intense fear, and anxiety that result from a dog attack. Don’t go it alone. Let our trusted Los Angeles dog bite injury attorneys get you the compensation you deserve before it’s too late. Although we love dogs, we won’t hesitate to hold the owner financially responsible for his out-of-control animal that causes injury in a dog bite or dog attack case.
The sooner you call us, the better chance you’ll have of a favorable outcome.
Los Angeles Leads Country in Dog Bite Incidents
Los Angeles is known for being the second largest city in America. Unfortunately, it’s also known for being the dog attack capital of the country. Research shows that Southern California in particular is overrun with aggressive breeds of dogs for two reasons: popularity of choosing household pets bred for protection rather than companionship, and growing popularity of illegal dog fighting.
As a result, dogs who have been trained to regard strangers with anger and protective instincts can be difficult or even impossible to control. Small children, teens, adults, elderly, postal workers…no one is immune to the possibility of becoming an innocent dog attack victim. We can’t control that.
What we CAN control is how to secure your financial future. You may need coverage for ongoing medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, cost of surgeries, permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
Put our Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer to Work for You
Sometimes you just don’t know where to turn after a tragic dog bite attack. You’re trying to recover and pull your family together but you’re missing work and can’t keep up with the bills.
You might expect your insurance company to come through for you, but you might be waiting a long time for that. And when you do get something, it won’t come close to covering what you need. That’s just the way they operate.
That’s NOT the way we operate here at Kuzyk Law, where our goal is to get you more than enough to cover the medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, cost of surgeries, permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress that you are entitled to.
That money may come from a variety of sources, such as the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance that may cover bites and attacks with policies ranging from $100,000 to $300,000 and sometimes even up to millions of dollars.
Here are some common injuries that can occur as a result of dog bites in LA. Have these happened to you?
- Long-term emotional scars
- Humiliation and Embarrassment
- Permanent Scars and Disfigurement
- Serious head and face injuries
- Deep contusions
- Loss or impairment of the use of hands, arms, feet and legs

If you fear a lengthy courtroom battle, please know that many times the process doesn’t even get that far. Many cases are settled quietly via mediation and negotiation.
Dog owners in this state are responsible for how their dogs act. The California Civil Code Section reads “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.” This applies not just to homeowners but landlords as well, who may have to pay up in the event their tenants keep a dangerous dog on the premises.
