California is considered a “strict liability” state.
Simply said, this means that dog owners will be hold accountable for the actions of their pets. And, had there been any accident such as dog bite, they will be responsible.
Section 3342 of the Civil Code of California states the dog bite law. It states, the owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.
Oftentimes, some of the dog owners can be utterly perplexed at such an incident and claim their dog has never behaved aggressively before. Even for such cases, the owner will be liable of the situation. The “One Bite Rule” is not applicable here and owners are entirely responsible for arranging the compensation associated with any injuries suffered by their dog.
Most of the time, your injuries will need immediate medical attention. Also, make sure to gather all the required information such as name, address, and contact details of the pet owner. Take pictures of the injury, record the locations and consult a personal injury lawyer to file your case.
There is a two-year statute of limitations in California to file dog bite cases.
