If you or a loved one or even your pet, have suffered injuries from a dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries. Liability can be imposed on the dog owner, dog keeper and the landlord.
California Dog Bite Statute
In California, there is a strict liability dog bite statute. A strict liability statute means an individual or entity is liable for the damages caused to another regardless of the fact that he acted with reasonable care when controlling the animal. As such, the owner of a dog is liable for damages suffered by any person who is bitten or attacked by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place. The owner is liable regardless of the dog's history of viciousness or the owner’s knowledge of such.
