Who is Liable for a Dog Bite Injury in California?

According to laws in the state of California, a dog owner is legally liable for the actions of his or her dog, especially in cases where the dog bites or attacks another person. If you are attacked and/or bitten by another person's dog, regardless of the circumstances that led up to the incident, you may have grounds to file an insurance claim or sue the dog's owner for all expenses relating to your injuries. When a dog has a history of violent or vicious behavior, the dog owner take reasonable precautions to ensure the dog will not repeat such behavior. In cases where the dog has never attacked another person those types of safety measures may not be in place. As dogs are animals, any number of scenarios could potentially set them off and cause a vicious attack, often with serious consequences, even death.
