According to California Law, Section 3342, the dog owner is liable for the damages it causes a victim who is bitten by the dog. The dog bite can occur in a public or private place, including the dog owner’s property.
California has these specific dog leash laws in place that are meant to prevent dog attacks from happening. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t always prevent us from aggressive dogs and negligent dog owners.
Being bitten by a dog or other animal can be a traumatic event. This is especially true when the victim is a small child or a vulnerable elderly person. In addition to their physical injuries, dog bite victims often experience psychological and emotional problems.
