Dog Bite Accident Lawyer San Diego CA Gingery Hammer Schneiderman LLPDog owners are obliged to defend others from bites and assaults. The state of California has a leash law in which dog owners are required to have a potentially dangerous dog on a leash when outside their home at all times. Leash laws in the city of San Diego dictate that a dog must be on a leash whenever outside its owner’s yard, even if it does not pose an actual risk.

If your dog bites someone because you were careless in keeping it away from others, failed to have it on a leash, or failed to properly secure it within your property boundaries, you may be held liable if the situation involves negligence.

Unfortunately, many people who are mauled by dogs suffer significant injuries that might include:

  • Amputation
  • Brain Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Disfigurement
  • Fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of Limbs/Amputation
  • Massive Head Trauma
  • Severe Bruising

At Gingery Hammer & Schneiderman LLP, our team of seasoned San Diego dog bites attorneys defends both victims and family members of people who have been attacked by dogs. Our first aim is to ensure that our clients receive the medical treatment they require and deserve. Our second objective is to make sure that we follow all applicable laws in an attempt to secure maximum compensation for someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, or negligence.


If we believe you have a genuine case, we can submit a premises liability claim on your behalf for personal injury or death damages. Victims or family members of victims may be reimbursed for expenses such as income loss, medical costs, future medical care, mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of benefits, inheritance replacement, and funeral costs when a claim is filed.
