While most dogs are friendly and rightfully known as "man's best friend", there are some that do not fit this description and are a danger to anyone crossing their path. Other hounds may appear tame but have unpredictable aggression triggers. Additionally, when a pet owner acts negligently or otherwise fails to control their dog, even the kindest pet can cause serious harm. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury caused by a dog attack, you will want to develop a personal injury claim with a Long Beach dog attack attorney that understands this unique field of litigation inside and out.

There Is No "One-Bite Law" in California

California Dog Bite Law (California Civil Code 3342) law states that the owner of a dog is liable to anyone bitten by the dog in a public place or in a private place if they are there lawfully, including the dog owner's home. The civil code creates "strict liability" so that dog owners are held responsible for their animal's actions, even if it is their first time biting someone or if they never showed signs of aggression in the past. Furthermore, if someone is just watching over the dog as a caretaker, it is likely the caretaker will not be held responsible for the dog's actions. An action against the owner of the dog may be brought against them to determine whether the dog needs to be removed for public safety.
