Escondido Dog Bite Attorney

Thousands of people living in Escondido have dogs. They are known as man’s best friend, but not everyone is fond of being around a dog. Whether it’s due to allergies or fear, being around a dog for some can lead to panic attacks, stress, anxiety and other issues. Even the most well-behaved and well-trained dogs can wind up snapping and biting someone. If you are ever bitten in a dog attack it’s important to protect your rights and speak with an Escondido dog bite attorney about your injuries.

An Escondido dog bite attorney will be able to investigate your incident, obtain the police report, and provide you with an honest review of your case. Call our team today at 619-543-1789 to learn more about your rights.
