Dog Bite Lawyers in Sacramento
On Call 24/7 to Help the Victims of Dog Attacks
When a pet owner loses control, their agitated dog may bite, scratch, or knock over those nearby. This scenario 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, because they are shorter, children might 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.

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 damages caused by a biting dog, even if it had no prior history of aggression. An owner cannot defend themselves with the claim they did not know their dog could bite.
This makes it easier to prove they should be liable for your injuries. With you, we 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 for compensation just because you’re confused about whether you can. Our attorneys can help you understand what steps you can take after a dog attack or bite.
