Experienced and Aggressive Representation in Dog Bite Injury Claims

If you have suffered a dog bite injury, whether from a neighbor's dog or in your job as a postal worker, cable company worker or delivery truck driver, you may have serious long-term injuries with emotional as well as financial consequences. You want an experienced personal injury lawyer, one who understands the effects of a dog bite injury and will aggressively help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.

At the Law Office of Timothy W. Mazzela, in Fresno, we have successfully represented personal injury victims throughout the Central Valley and the San Joaquin Valley for 20 years, including individuals who have suffered dog bites. We have built our reputation on thorough preparation, trial experience and negotiation skills. Our clients have also benefited from our understanding of the medical issues resulting from a personal injury. Contact our offices to set up a free initial consultation.

If you have suffered a dog bite injury, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will make certain that appropriate steps are taken to determine whether the dog has rabies or other dangerous or deadly diseases and can act as your liaison with the Department of Health (DOH). We have extensive experience working the DOH to make certain the dog is quarantined, that any communicable diseases are diagnosed and that the dog does not attack others in the future.

When we take your case, we will first make certain that you get to the right doctor, so that all of your injuries can be quickly identified and documented, and that you can receive the treatment you need to begin the healing process. Next, we will take the steps necessary to determine whether the dog exhibited vicious tendencies and preserve the evidence, so that we avoid the risk that evidence is lost, that the dog is removed, that the owners move or that memories fade.

We handle dog bite cases for individuals that involve a wide range of injuries, from puncture wounds and lacerations to shoulder and facial injuries involving scarring and nerve damage. Dog bites can also lead to post-traumatic stress disorder or other mental and emotional distress. We have represented adults and children in claims involving many different breeds of dogs, including Rottweilers, pit bulls and German Shepherds.
