Dog Attack, Dog Mauling and Dog Bite Attorney

If you have ever been bitten by a dog, you should take action immediately by identifying the dog’s owner, taking pictures of your injuries, finding out if the dog has bitten anyone before and taking pictures of the places where the dog is kept. When someone is bitten, attacked or mauled by a dog, not only can there be serious and disfiguring injuries, but there are often very real psychological effects from such an attack. You can be compensated for your injuries, even if the dog has never bitten anyone before. In some instances, your own homeowner’s insurance policy may provide coverage for your losses.

The law in California for dog bites makes the owner of the dog strictly liable to the person bitten. Strict liability means that the owner of the dog is liable for the damages the dog bite causes if the person bitten was bitten while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog. This is the case regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness. (California Civil Code §3342(a).)
