Dog bite liability in California
In California, dog owners are liable for damages caused by their dog if their dog bit the victim and if the victim was lawfully on the premises. California has a strict liability dog bite statute, which means that the owner cannot evade liability by claiming he or she was not aware of the dog’s aggression or that the dog had no prior history of aggression. If a dog injures an individual by a bite, then the dog owner is responsible.
As a dog bite victim, you may be facing high medical bills, lost wages, and even psychological trauma after a dog bite attack. We understand the unique challenges in dog bite injury claims and what it takes to help you recover the maximum damages.
