Not all dogs are cute and cuddly. Some unfortunately do not receive the proper training they need from their owners. A dog’s jaw is very powerful and a deep bite can cause significant injury, ripping muscle and tendons and even breaking bones. You could face long-term scarring or impairment or become unable to do your job. In the state of California, dog owners are held strictly liable for dog bites, regardless of the dog’s history. The attorneys at Pyramid Legal can help you recover any hospital bills or lost income as a result of your dog bite.
Everyday products can be dangerous if they’re defective in their design, manufacturing, or marketing. We often take the safety of the products around us for granted, but when proper safety and quality protocols are not followed, catastrophic injuries can result.

Pyramid Legal helps clients hold companies accountable for injuries caused by their defective products.

Even if someone causes the death of another, it may not always rise to the level of a crime – for example, traffic accidents where the at-fault driver was neither reckless nor intended to hurt anyone. But whether criminal charges are involved or not, a victim’s family can still get justice in civil court by filing a wrongful death lawsuit or survival action.
Property damage could cost you thousands of dollars or more, whether it’s damage to your car, home, business, or other high-value personal property such as electronics.
