Dog Owners Have Strict Liability for Bite Injuries
In the state of California, dog owners are strictly liable for any bite injuries that their pets may inflict. This means that you do not need to prove that the dog was previously known to be dangerous or that the dog owner should have known the dog would hurt you.
However, there are still some legal defenses that the dog owner may attempt to use in order to evade liability for your injuries.
