Don’t settle for the meager payout your insurance company throws at you. Do something about your own future: call Kuzyk Law just as soon as you obtain medical attention.

Santa Clarita and Southern California #1 in Dog Bite Incidents
Being the third largest city in Los Angeles County, Santa Clarita is one of the most common cities in the whole country for dog bites and dog attacks. It seems Southern California has an affinity for aggressive breeds of dogs, thanks to the widespread practice of illegal dog fighting and the tendency for people to choose household pets bred for protection over companionship. Dogs who have been trained irresponsibly to cast suspicious eyes on strangers can be difficult or even impossible to control.
If you have already been the victim of a dog bite, you need restitution and you need it fast. The quicker you report the injury, the better chance you have of winning your case.
As the premier dog bite lawyers in Santa Clarita, Kuzyk Law brings a 40+ year history of winning more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for our clients. Unfortunately, we see far too many dog bite cases that end tragically. Call us to get more than what the insurance company is willing to pay you.
We Will Fight for YOU
From deep contusions to even death, dog attacks represent a cruel, humiliating, painful and emotionally scarring act that you shouldn’t have to be responsible for.

“Everything was excellent, prompt with everything. They kept us updated along the way. Will definitely be recommending Kuzyk to others.” – Jesus F., Palmdale
Dealing with insensitive private insurance companies can often be the most stressful part of a dog bite, aside from the injury itself. Because these companies are profit driven rather than people driven, they focus on paying out as little as possible on dog bite claims – usually much less than your insurance plan SHOULD cover, and certainly not enough to cover all the expenses brought about by this type of attack.
The bills don’t end with the initial ER visit. There are current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, reconstructive surgeries and rehabilitative therapy to think about. The insurance companies don’t scare us, and we won’t hesitate to go head to head to secure a substantial payout.
Have you been bitten or viciously attacked by a dog in Santa Clarita? Did you sustain any of these injuries?
- Permanent Scars and Disfigurement
- Serious head and face injuries
- Deep contusions
- Loss or impairment of the use of hands, arms, feet and legs
- Long-term emotional scars
- Humiliation and Embarrassment
- Medical expenses, plastic surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy
- Loss of income, medical expenses and extreme pain
- Emotional and Psychological Suffering
- Nerve Injuries
If so, you are entitled to compensation. The California Civil Code Section says it all: “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.”
What this means is that dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. Even landlords can be found responsible for their tenants who harbor a dangerous dog on the premises.
The homeowner’s insurance policy of the dog owner may cover dog bites and dog attacks with policies convering from $300,000 up to the millions. That money could go towards medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, cost of surgeries, permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress that you are entitled to.
