Animal owners are legally bound to prevent their pets and livestock from injuring others. When an animal attacks or inadvertently causes an injury, the injury victim has the right to pursue compensation for his or her losses.
At Krankemann Petersen in Ukiah and Santa Rosa, California, we represent plaintiffs in personal injury cases involving dog attacks, horse injuries, vehicle accidents caused by wandering livestock and other animal-related injuries. With over 45 years of legal experience, Pano Stephens of Krankemann Petersen is prepared to help you pursue fair and just compensation for your losses.
Handling All Types Of Animal Injury Claims
While dog bites are the most common type of animal injury claims, many species of animal can prove dangerous, even deadly. Horses can cause severe injuries by kicking people or throwing riders onto the ground. Pet snakes such as pythons and boa constrictors can injure people by biting them or crushing them. Cat scratches can result in dangerous infections. Other animals such as monkeys and birds have also been known to cause injuries.
Because of the numerous ranches and farms in Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma counties, injuries also occur when livestock such as horses or cattle stray from penned areas onto roads or other areas where they can cause harm to people.
Whatever the cause of your animal injury, our law firm is here to help. We are proven advocates for injury victims and can help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other hardships.
