DOG BITE LAWYERS

As harmless and friendly as dogs usually are, our unfortunate reality is that dog bite attacks are on the rise. These attacks can cause distress, injury, and death.  Dogs that attack others are oftentimes neglected, abused, or have inattentive owners, which is never an excuse for the injury or death caused to others. Children and infants are the most vulnerable to injuries caused by dog bite attacks.

CALIFORNIA DOG BITE LAWS: STRICT LIABILITY

In California, dog owners are held “strictly liable” for damages caused by their dogs. This means that in order to recover, dog bite victims simply need to prove (1) that they were bitten, (2) that they were not trespassing on the property where they were bit, (3) that the defendant owned the dog, and (4) that the dog bite caused injury to the victim.

The burden is on the dog owner to make sure that all dog attacks are prevented by properly training and restraining their dogs. Dog owners will not be let off the hook by arguing that their dog had never attacked anyone before or that the owner was unaware of the animal’s capacity for violence.

Dog bite lawsuits can also be brought on grounds of negligence, which could include allowing the dog to roam off-leash, or putting dog bite victims in harm’s way.
