More Than 15 Years of Experience • Licensed In Both California and New York

Law Office of Fulvio A. Picerno

I have been practicing personal injury law for over 15 years. I represent individuals who have been seriously injured due to the fault of others. The variety of personal injury cases I handle arise from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, slip / trip and fall accidents, dog bites and from any other incident causing physical and mental injuries.

Prior to becoming a plaintiff’s attorney, I worked as a defense attorney, serving the legal needs of a variety of insurance companies, and providing legal defense to their insureds. My past experience gives me a unique advantage to efficiently analyze a personal injury claim, competently advise on the strength and weakness of a potential lawsuit, and effectively strategize litigation to maximize monetary compensation for my clients.

Dog Bite

California strict liability law holds the dog owner accountable if his dog bites a person, even if the dog had never exhibited a vicious behavior in the past and even if the dog owner was not negligent in restraining the dog.

Dog bite injuries may be covered under homeowner’s and renter’s insurance policies. If the dog attack occurred on common area in a condominium setting, the homeowner’s association policy may provide coverage for the incident.
