Dog Bite LAWSUITS

California has strict liability laws regarding dog bites and dog attacks that cause injury. This means there are specific but limited facts that dog bite victims must prove in order to obtain recovery for their injuries. If you’ve been bitten or attacked by someone else’s dog, seek immediate medical care and contact PARRIS Attorneys for a free case consultation.

Dog Bite Lawyers

As harmless and friendly as dogs usually are, it is the unfortunate case that dog bite attacks are on the rise, and can cause serious injury or 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’S STRICT LIABILITY DOG BITE LAWS

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 that they were bitten, were not trespassing on the property where they were bit, that defendant owned the dog, and 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 are not allowed to argue that their dog had never attacked anyone before or that the owner was unaware of the animal’s capacity for violence as a means of limiting their liability for the injuries caused.

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.
