California Dog Bite Law

If you or a loved one was 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, which means that a dog owner is strictly liable for his or her dog’s vicious behavior even if the dog has never displayed aggression or violent tendencies before. Many times, attacks are covered in the dog owner’s insurance policy, which should make representing your case that much easier.
