Dog Bite Law in California
California considers dog bites through a lens of strict liability. Essentially, this means an owner is responsible for any and all injuries caused by their pet, even if the dog had no prior history of aggression. An owner cannot defend themselves with the claim that their dog has no history of aggressive behavior.
This makes it easier to prove they should be liable for your injuries. Our Sacramento dog bite lawyers can put together a claim to verify the following points:
- The dog bite was the direct cause of the damages you’re claiming
- The dog bit a person in a public place or on private property the victim was lawfully visiting
When a dog is responsible for scratching or knocking over a victim, other laws may come into play. The same is true for those bitten by a dog that is carrying out military or police work. However, you shouldn’t give up your right to file a personal injury lawsuit just because you’re confused about dog bite laws. Our Sacramento dog bite injury attorneys can help you understand what steps you can take after a dog attack.
Injuries to Children
A dog attack is scary enough on its own, but it becomes worse when you realize most dog bite victims are children. Being attacked in this way can be tragic for a child, who may fear dogs for the rest of their life. Additionally, children are more likely to sustain injury to their head, neck, and face. Not only can these wounds be dangerous—they can also leave lifelong scars that can affect a child’s self-image and self-esteem.
