Dog Bites & California Law

California is a strict liability state, which means owners are not able to claim they did not know the dog would be aggressive or bite someone. Regardless of whether the dog has bitten many times or never, the dog’s owner is responsible for damages that result from the dog biting another person. In order to prove liability, you only need to show that the bite occurred in a public place or when you were lawfully on private property.

Recovering Damages for Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can cause serious injuries, and California has more dog bites than any other state. Victims of dog bites can seek compensation for expenses related to the incident, such as the cost of medical care, lost wages due to the injury, pain and suffering, and other damages. The specific damages depend on the age of the victim and the severity of the injury.

Dog bites can cause serious injuries, including

  • Puncture injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Facial injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Muscle sprains
  • Nerve damage
  • Infection
  • Severe trauma and emotional distress

Every state has a statute of limitations for filing personal injury lawsuits. In California, the victims of dog bite injuries have two years to file a case or you may lose your right to recover damages. Our Newport Beach dog bite attorneys recommend contacting us much sooner to allow plenty of time to investigate your claim, gather and preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and prepare your case.
