Dog Bite Cases in California

Frequently, a dog bite can result in serious injury; sometimes the victims is a helpless child. The impact of a severe dog attack on a child's life can be disastrous, and the consequences far reaching.

Depending on the dog doing the biting, the owner of that dog, and the relationship between all involved, California dog bite law may provide relief for the injured person.

It is therefore important to have an experienced dog bite attorney analyze the facts of the case and research the breed of dog in order to determine if the law provides a right of compensation for the injury resulting from the dog bite.

Dog Bite Law in California

In California stautes, ordinances and case law address the regulation of dogs and their owners, and the bases for compensation in the case of injury. For example, in cases involving certain types of dogs, i.e., dangerous dogs (dogs with a "dangerous propensity" or "vicious propensity") the owner of the dog may be liable for injury, without regard to fault (strict liability).

In other situations, owners, landlords or other persons who "keep" or "harbor" dangerous dogs may be liable when the dogs attack. The facts of each case will often determine the outcome of that particular case.
