Animal bites can have serious consequences to you and your family. The financial and social consequences can be severe. The byzantine maze of dealing with an insurance company, different laws, your own medical or health insurance, Medi-Cal, Medi-Care, and other factors make it a mistake to try and deal with this situation on your own. It is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible after a dog bite or animal attack , and then consult an attorney as soon as possible thereafter. A dog bite lawyer is able to tell you whether you should seek legal action against the responsible party, can evaluate your case, and obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
