Orange County, California Lawyer Explores Importance Of Hiring Professional Dog Bite Attorney

January 08, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Orange County, California based Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer is issuing a public advisory about the importance of hiring a professional personal injury lawyer when dealing with dog bite cases in California. The firm also points out that hiring an experienced attorney helps victims secure a fair amount of compensation and ensures that dog owners will be held accountable due to their negligence.

According to a study from the Center For Disease Control (CDC), approximately 4.7 million dog bites occur in the United States each year, and 800,000 of those bites result in medical care. The US population is approximately 325.7 million people as of 2017, which means means a dog bites 1 out of every 69 people.

“Being attacked by a dog, regardless of whether it has caused a serious physical injury or not, can be a very traumatizing experience, especially for little children. If you or any of your loved ones were permanently disfigured or psychologically traumatized due to a dog attack incident, it is imperative that you hire a professional attorney so you can get the maximum compensation that you and your family deserves,” says Alexander D. Napolin from Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer. He asserts that hiring a personal injury lawyer for dog bite is the best course of action after a dog attack incident because an attorney who is experienced in the field will know how to identify the true value of the case. Moreover, dog bite lawyers protect the interest of their clients as they assess and scrutinize offers from insurance companies in order to receive the best possible settlement.

“It might be tempting to immediately accept offers from the at fault party’s insurance company during the initial negotiation stage. However, you should take note that insurance companies will always try to offer you the least possible amount of compensation,” says Napolin. He explains that some injuries do not manifest immediately, and a number of costly complications after the attack could happen at any time.

The most frequently sustained injuries from dog attacks are puncture wounds and lacerations from the canine's teeth violently contacting the person's skin and extremities. Along with these types of open wounds comes bacterial infection or infectious disease, such as rabies, that result from the exposed punctures or lacerations. In addition to physical injuries, many victims of dog attacks also suffer from PTSD and other related symptoms, including intrusive memories, avoidance, negative mood swings, anxiety, irrational fears, recurring nightmares, total loss of sleep, and more. In addition to the obvious medical bills and follow-up care, victims might also need to undergo therapy and mental health care to help them return to a state of normalcy.

Meanwhile, as noted on the firm’s website, California's tough stance on dog attacks categorizes the region as a "strict liability" state. This means that the dog owner is held responsible for damages under these conditions: the injury resulted from being bitten and not a scratch or other injury, or the bite occurred while in a public place or lawfully on private property. It is very difficult for a pet owner to escape liability if their dog bites someone. Under this statute, the pet owner is liable even if the dog has no history of aggressive behavior, the owner had no idea the dog could become aggressive, and the owner took reasonable measures to prevent the incident.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jun 6, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jun 6, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Jun 6, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Jun 6, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
