Injured from a Dog Bite in Orange County?

Get Professional Legal Help - (888) 480-3883

California has a “strict liability” policy when it comes to dog bite cases. This means that dog owners are responsible for their animals if they attack another person: Under State Civil Code, the liable dog owner must pay damages for anyone who has bitten in a public or private place, even on the dog owner’s property. With a skilled Orange County dog bite attorney on your side, you may be able to recover the compensation to which you are truly entitled.

Understanding Dog Owner Liability in Orange County

In order to make a strong legal claim for compensation, you will need to understand California’s strict liability laws. Under these dog bite statutes, the dog owner will always owe compensation to the person who was injured by their dog—except under certain circumstances.

The only exceptions to the strict liability are if the victim:

  • Was trespassing
  • Provoked the dog
  • Was bitten by his employer's dog while on the job, which falls under the Labor Code
  • Performed a paid service involving the dog

(Liability for the dog's behavior begins the moment an individual becomes the owner.)

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”
