My Child Was Bitten by a Neighbor’s Dog! They Are Our Friends, but They Have Insurance. Can We Get My Child's Medical Bills Paid Through Our Neighbor's Insurance and Not Sue Them?
Yes! When you make a claim, you are not starting the lawsuit process. Insurance is there to protect your neighbor from liability in the event of a calamity or unforseen dog bite. In the example above, you are free to start the claim process and limit your claim to the insurance available. Simply advise your neighbor of the need to do this and your intent and they should understand.
Then contact a Los Angeles or Orange County dog bite attorney to set up the claim. Your claim will include submission of medical bills to treat your child's injuries, and also pain and suffering. If it is an older child, there may even be a wage loss claim while recuperating from the bite.
Remember that a dog owner in California is strictly liable for a vicious dog attack. Consult an attorney early to see if your child's rights need to be protected and pursued. Call us if we can help. We specialize in dog bite cases and have had a successful track record of never losing any dog bite case in the history of the firm. Call (888) 752-7474.
You should ask every attorney you are interviewing to demonstrate not only their success in a few cases, but also about their success over a large, broad spectrum of cases. As you saw in Mr. Ballidis' book "Avoid Lawyer Advertising Hype", there are lots of attorneys that HYPE that they are superior firms, or superior attorneys, but some have virtually no experience in the courtroom, or in the handling of large cases. You need to know their track record and they should be able to prove it to you.
If you would like us to consider your case, please feel free to call us. Even if we cannot take your case, we may be able to help you. We know an extensive array of attorneys and doctors, and we may even be able to direct you to the attorney or person that can best help you.

You were wonderful throughout my case. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain the process so that I could feel comfortable. When I was hurt, I really did not know where to turn and Suzanne was comforting and knowledgable. Thanks again for all you did.
