Have you been injured from a dog bite or other animal attack?
Dog Bites are a major public health problem not only for the associated risk of acquiring secondary infections and occasional death due to trauma (which occurs often in children) but also for the possibility of contracting rabies which, if left untreated, is almost invariably fatal.
Dog Owner’s Responsibility
A dog owner has an obligation to restrain his or her animal for public safety. As long as you are on private or public property legally, the dog owner may be held responsible.
If you own a dog in California, and that dog bites someone, you are liable or legally responsible for the dog bite, if the person bitten was legally on the premises where the dog bite or dog attack occurred.
Under California dog bite law, a dog that bites is the absolute responsibility of its owner. This concept is called strict liability under dog bite law in California. Animal attacks and animal bites are the strict liability of the animals’ owner. In California, if you own a dog, you pay for the dog bite injuries and all subsequent damages related to the dog bites or dog attack.
