That is why it is important to contact us TODAY so that we can learn more about your specific incident and let you know how we can help you to receive the full compensation to which you are entitled.
What Type of Liability do California Dog Owners Have?
Many states have different laws regarding animal owner’s liability if their animal attacks someone. Some states allow the “one bite rule”, which means that the owners of domesticated dogs are not liable for the first attack their dog makes. California dog owners are subject to a strict liability law that is specific to the state. This statute does not allow for a “one bite” exception, making California dog owners liable for injuries caused by their dog, even if it was the first incident. To hold the owner accountable, among other things, the victim must prove that the bite or attack occurred in a public location, or on a private property that the victim had permission to be on (such as an invited guest into a home).
This statute is not limited to dog bites, but also applies to the attacks and accidents of dogs and other domestic animals. For example, if someone has a dog that knocks you over while riding your bike, you may be able to recover financially for any injuries that you sustain at the time of the incident.
This statute also applies to people that may not be the animal’s actual owner, but have temporary stewardship over the animal, such as a dog-sitter or someone with permission to watch a dog.
What are Common Injuries From Animal Attacks?
Animal attacks can result in cuts and bruises, along with nerve and tissue damage. These attacks can cause severe post-traumatic stress disorder in many victims, which can result in hundreds of hours of therapy. Animal attacks can be particularly dangerous for small children, often times leading to life-long disability or even death.
If you have been the victim of an animal attack, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. Some animals carry harmful diseases such as rabies, and theses types of injuries must be treated quickly and by a medical professional.
