Dog Attacks On Friends And Family

A family reunion or dinner party can take a very uncomfortable turn when you are bitten by the host's dog. You never imagined suing your friends, and now you are in the position of having to hold them accountable for the injuries caused by their dog. At The Ellis Firm, APLC, in Temecula, California, we are lawyers who understand the sensitive nature of dog attacks to friends and family members.

Making A Claim Against Your Friend's Insurance Company

The most important thing to keep in mind as you pursue your case is that you are not suing your friend - you are making a claim against your friend's or family member's insurance company. If all parties involved keep this in mind, there is no reason the friendship has to end.

We understand that the person on the other side of your case is your friend - as we handle your case, we will remain sensitive to this fact and work to ensure that you are compensated fairly without making your friend or family member feel threatened.

Whatever the situation, we will keep your best interests in mind. We have a history of effectively handling dog bite cases for dog bite victims throughout Southern California, and we will take forceful action to achieve the best possible results for you.

Many people have questions after a dog bite or attack occurs. Some of the most common questions are; Will my homeowners insurance cover a dog bite? Or Does my renters insurance have coverage for dog bites? In many cases the answer is yes, however the amount and the coverage depend from person to person. Before settling with any insurance company you really should consult a attorney as soon as possible. We offer free consultations so please call or chat online with one of consultants now 951-289-0628.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one died as the result of a dog bite, we can help you file a wrongful death claim. Although no amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one, wrongful death claims can provide compensation to surviving family members, helping them move forward with their lives. Wrongful death lawsuits also send a clear message to negligent dog owners: Deadly attacks by dangerous dogs should never happen and will be taken seriously under the law.
