Understanding When You Can Make an Injury Claim for a Dog Bite in CaliforniaMarch 18, 2022
Perhaps you have suffered a dog bite in California, or perhaps it is your dog that bit someone else, resulting in an injury. This event may have happened on your property or elsewhere. Now you want to know how the ability to make a claim is affected by the details of this situation.
California has a strict liability law that says the owner of a dog is responsible for injuries caused when that dog bites a person. The ownership of the property where the bite occurred does not affect this liability.
If your dog bites someone on your property or another’s property, then you are responsible for the resulting injuries in California. Likewise, if you are bitten by a dog on your property or on another’s property, the owner of the dog is responsible for your injuries resulting from the dog bite. Watch the video to learn more.
