Los Angeles Dog Bite Lawyer
The majority of dog owners are responsible for their dog or animal attacking a stranger. This usually happens because the owner did not practice reasonable care when having the animal around strangers. When an animal doesn’t behave around people it is the owners responsibility to remove the animal. When a dog bite occurs the victim can suffer serious injury and require medical attention which can be costly depending on the injury caused. Victims of a Los Angeles dog bite can suffer from PTSD along with other mental health problems caused by the attack such as extreme anxiety when around animals. Dog bite attacks are very serious and can require much medical attention and therapy to recover from the experience.

How to Prove Who Is Liable For The Accident
Pet owners are responsible for keeping their animal trained in the presence of strangers. An owner will be held liable for all attacks that occur in a public place or private property. The owner may not entirely be at fault if the animal was provoked in some way such as jumping a fence to taunt the animal. If the victim trespassed upon the property of the dog, the owner may have liability waived if a sign was visible that a dog is present and possibly dangerous. Partial liability may not apply to children if they are attacked by an owners animal. Government animals such as trained attack dogs are removed from liability if they attack a suspect that was warranted. The government animal and owner is not responsible for these types of damages unless a trained government dog attacks a civilian that was unwarranted in a public or private location.

What Do Our Clients Say?
I was hit by an uninsured driver and didn’t know what to do next. I found Chris online and the rest was such a relief. Paola is also assisting me by handling all of my medical appointments and keeping my case in order. We haven’t settled yet, but we will soon!
I got in a pretty bad car accident in July of 2015. I was rear ended so bad that my car was labeled as a total loss. I looked around for a good attorney for a few weeks. After reading reviews, and talking to friends, the name Chris Mova with Mova Law Group came up the most. So, I decided to call him to see if I wanted to hire him. Chris personally talked to me on the phone, explained what my options were and asked me if I wished to meet him face-to-face at his office. I met him at his office a few days later and I decided to hire him. Chris fought hard with the insurance company, they weren't being reasonable in the beginning. It wasn't until he showed them a copy of the lawsuit he planned on filing that they finally decided to pay for my injury. He is as aggressive of a lawyer as I have seen (based on his letters to the insurance company), but yet so friendly and nice with me.
I recently had a case where a large insurance firm denied my claim despite their insured admitting guilt. After contacting Chris, he walked me through the steps I should take which included filing a small claims case. Chris’s quick advice on matters as simple as court room etiquette, posture and deference, I believe made a difference in my case and as a result I won the case. He’s a consummate professional and I will continue to use him for legal consul.
Listen up people! By far the best experience I've had with an attorney. Chris and his team really care about your well being to get you medical attention. I had a serious car accident in August 2018. The other party had no insurance or license. Therefore, because I did have uninsured motorist insurance, Mova Law Group was able to leverage my uninsured motorist funds to pay his costs, my medical attention costs and a settlement check to cover additionally expenses which turned out to be 2 times what I thought and I received that check within 7 months. Thank you Mova Law Group.
