San Diego Dog Bite Injury Attorney
Dogs are certainly a best friend, and for many dog owners, their pets receive substantial love, friendship, and education. Unfortunately, dog bites can occur, and sometimes the bite can be quite grave, resulting in permanent disfiguration or even, in a worst case scenario, death. Furthermore, very few dogs are inherently bad, and most (if not all!) dog bites could have been prevented through proper dog training techniques.
As such, when you’re bitten by a dog, a San Diego dog bite injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost work or the future inability to work, and for pain and suffering.
With years of experience, the Law Offices of Jason A. Rodenbo fully understands how to pursue a dog bite injury case, from gathering evidence and making a claim to rigorously defending you in court.

Possible Damages and Awards in a Dog Bite Attack
Every year, there are about 4.5 million people bitten by dogs; over half of dog bite victims are children. Furthermore, compared to many other personal injury cases, dog bite attacks can be very serious. A single bite can result in multiple surgeries, lengthy hospitalizations, skin grafting, expensive medication necessary for treating infection, extensive physical therapy, financial losses from time off of work, counseling for possible PTSD, and so forth. As you can see, fully recovering from a vicious dog bite attack can cost a small fortune.
Liability of the Owner
When you have a dog(s), you are therefore accepting the responsibility of training them so that they can be comfortable, non-stressed, and non-aggressive in any social situation. Even guard dogs should have a strict training regime to ensure that aggressive behavior is utilized only in the appropriate situations. Therefore, if a dog bite occurs, it is not the dog at fault, but instead it’s a negligent owner abusing the dog or failing to properly restrain, care for, train, and/or handle the animal. In a dog bite case, the most pressing issue is proving that the dog owner was negligent and that the negligence was the reason for the bite.
