Don’t Feel Bad If You Need to File a Claim Against a Neighbor or Friend
If you’ve been bitten by a neighbor’s or friend’s dog, you might hesitate to file a claim because you believe that doing so would hurt your relationship. However, it’s important to remember that you’re filing a claim with their insurance provider. That means your friend or relative won’t be paying for your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses from their own savings.
Instead, their insurance company will provide the damages you need to get back on your feet. Besides, they’ll probably understand that you need compensation to recover from your injuries and cover other expenses related to the incident.
Instead of giving up your right to compensation, reach out to a dog bite personal injury lawyer from Sacramento. The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner you’ll get the financial support you need to treat your injuries.

Don’t Wait to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Delaying your dog bite claim can only hurt your case. That’s because the state of California has a statute of limitations that all personal injury victims must abide by if they want to file a successful civil suit. According to Code of Civil Procedure § 335.1, you have two years from the date of your dog attack to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
While it’s true that many dog attack cases are settled, making a lawsuit unnecessary, there’s always a chance that you’ll have to take your case to trial. If that happens, you’ll be glad that you hired a dog bite personal injury attorney from Sacramento right away and got an early start on your case.
If you fail to get your suit filed within the two-year timeframe, you could risk having your case thrown out, which would stop you from getting the financial remedies you need to afford quality medical care, replace financial losses, and cope with the pain you’re experiencing. Instead of risking your compensation, reach out to a lawyer today.
We Won’t Charge Outrageous Legal Fees
When you think of hiring an attorney, you might think about expensive legal expenses and attorney’s fees. Our law firm doesn’t believe in charging out-of-pocket or upfront fees. Instead, we offer free consultations and contingency-fee representation.
Instead of charging you upfront, we’ll take a percentage of the compensation you receive from your claim. That way, you won’t have to worry about any more financial pressures than the ones you’re already dealing with.
