Dog Bite Laws
California Civil Code §3342 lays down the laws regarding dog bites in California. This is a strict liability statute which states that the dog owners are responsible for compensating victims that their animal has bitten. For legal assistance with this issue, speak with our San Jose personal injury attorney today!
In order to hold the liable party responsible for the dog bite, it must be proven that the attack took place either while in a public area or in private area that was not made safe for visitors. If the victim was bitten while trespassing on the owner’s property, they may not be able to obtain monetary compensation.
If you or your child was attacked by another’s dog while lawfully on their property or in a public area, speak with our lawyer from the Law Offices of Caroline J. Nasseri to understand your options and to begin the claims process. In many situations, the dog’s home life has taught him or her to be aggressive around humans. When a dog is not treated in a proper manner, this animal is more likely to attack. If this behavior is recognized in the animal, you can obtain substantial compensation for your injuries.
