FOR ACCIDENT AND INJURY VICTIMS

I’ve Been Bitten By A Dog; Now What?

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Humane Society of the United States, there are 4.5 million dog bites per year and 500,000 to 900,000 people require medical attention because of dog bites. Many of these victims are children.

A dog owner or any person responsible for a dog is liable for any personal injuries caused by the dog. California law states that the owner or keeper of a dog is strictly liable for the damages suffered by anyone who is bitten while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including on the dog owner’s property. This applies whether or not the dog has ever bitten anyone before and whether or not the owner has any prior knowledge of the animal’s viciousness. Dog bites can often result in serious or disabling injuries. They can result in permanent injuries or scars.

California’s Law Of Strict Liability In Dog Bite Cases

California dog bite laws impose what is termed “strict liability” on the owners of vicious dogs. Strict liability means that a person is responsible for damages even if he or she took ordinary care and was not negligent in keeping or controlling the dog.

Even if you are not bitten, the dog owner or keeper may be liable if you are injured by the animal for example, if your child is knocked over by the dog and hits his or her head. Without a bite, it is necessary to legally establish negligence on the part of the owner or keeper of the dog.
