Understanding California’s Dog Bite Law
California is one of the few states in the U.S. that have a clearly outlined dog bite law. According to the law: The owner of any dog is immediately liable for damages that are suffered by any individual that has been bitten by said dog while in a public place or (lawfully) in a private residence – including on the property of the owner of the dog.
Liability is placed upon the shoulders of the dog owner in the event of an attack or a biting incident. Individuals who are the victims of these kinds of attacks will usually have the opportunity to pursue some sort of recourse or compensation for the injuries and expenses that they have incurred.
