Understanding California’s Dog Bites Laws
If you or a loved one were bitten or attacked by a dog in the state of California, the state’s laws are in your favor. California is known as a strict liability state. This means that a dog owner is strictly liable for his or her dog’s vicious behavior. Many times, attacks are covered by the dog owner’s insurance policy. We have extensive experience with this section of California state law and will work to recover the maximum amount of compensation on your behalf.
