CA Dog Bite Laws

California follows a strict liability rule for dog bite cases. This means that dog owners can be held responsible for the injuries their pet inflicts even if the dog had never acted aggressively before or the owner had no prior knowledge that their dog would act aggressively towards another person.

What to Do in the Event of a Dog AttackA person with their hands up against a growling dog

At Christopher C. Vader PC, we can provide key assistance in investigating the facts and gathering evidence to prove you were not trespassing, provoking the dog intentionally, or performing a paid service involving the dog at the time of the accident. Conclusively ruling these circumstances out can greatly improve the validity and weight of your claim. However, there are steps you can take to improve the likelihood of receiving compensation even before an attorney is involved.

If you are bitten by a dog, it is important that you promptly do the following:

  • Get the name, address, and contact information of the dog owner.
  • Take down the contact information of any witnesses to the attack.
  • Photograph your injuries.
  • Seek medical care.
  • File a report with your local animal control office.

Unfortunately, dog bites can cause more damage than the physical wounds you sustain. Being attacked by an animal can cause severe emotional trauma, including lasting anxiety and fear of other dogs. Because of this, the laws surrounding dog bites change if a child is involved.

Christopher can provide invaluable assistance in pursuing compensation for:

  • Medical costs (initial treatment, rehabilitation, and psychological therapy)
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages or loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
