Unfortunately children are the most common victims of dog bites in Los Angeles, Orange County and throughout Southern California. The natural curiosity of a child combined with the attraction to a furry looking friend is often the recipe for an unexpected dog attack resulting in serious injuries to the face, neck, torso, arms and legs. The types of wounds that result from a dog bite leave irregular “tears” in the skin often resulting in severe scarring. These types of scars can require multiple plastic surgeries across several months or years depending upon the location of the scar and its severity.
My name is Rivers Morrell, and after more than 40 years of helping the citizens of Santa Ana and Orange county to recover financially for injuries received from dog bites I can tell you that helping a child through the healing process will consume most parents. Based upon my experience, my trial expertise and the recommendations of the legal industry you can entrust your family’s case to my team knowing that we will aggressively represent your interests and seek the best possible outcome in your child’s case.
Orange County reports 3 to 5 dog bites on average every day, so the likelihood that someone you know suffering a dog bite is actually quite high. Dog bites often result in damage to underlying tendons and ligaments, affecting range of motion and the ability to fully utilize limbs and fingers. Any settlement claim must ensure that all future medical expenses such as physical therapy, emotional counseling, and additional procedures (such as scar remission or plastic surgery) are provided for.
