Dog Bite, Dog Attack & Pet Accident Claims

Have you suffered a serious injury or damaged property because of someone’s pet or farm animal? The most common type of pet injury is a dog bite or an injury caused by a dog attack. In California, if a dog bites or attacks, even for the first time, the owner is liable for the injuries. The owner is also responsible for their dog whether it is on his or her property, and on a leash or off a leash. The owner of any domesticated animal may be liable for injuries caused by them.

Joe Herbert Law offers caring legal services to victims of pet-caused injuries. I am here to take care of your injury claim and help you get compensated for your bills, lost wages and other damages you have suffered due to someone else’s pet.

Were You or Your Child Injured in a Dog Attack?

As a Ventura and Los Angeles County attorney, I understand the long-term implications and the current problems of a dog bite injury. For children especially, the potential disfigurement, scarring and psychological trauma can impact the remainder of their lives. I will seek fair compensation for:

  • Immediate and long-term medical treatment
  • Surgery and reconstructive surgery
  • Disfigurement reconstruction or counseling
  • Lost wages or lost income due to the dog attack
  • Counseling for any psychological or emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering

I am relentless and detail-oriented when it comes to fighting for the interests of my clients who have suffered injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence.

I have offices in Camarillo (Ventura County) and Northridge in the San Fernando Valley. I have years of experience in dealing with California’s complicated legal codes and insurance companies, and I am licensed and authorized to practice law in all courts in the State of California.


There are limited time periods (deadlines) for filing claims that apply to legal matters. If you do not file in a timely manner with the appropriate internal office, outside agency or civil court, you may lose the right to seek redress for the claim. You should seek the advice of counsel to ascertain all of the applicable time periods.


You should immediately consult with an experienced attorney to learn more about what you can do to protect your rights and when the deadlines (statutes of limitation) expire in your specific case.
