Dog Bite Statute
California’s Dog Bite Statute states:
“The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness. A person is lawfully upon the private property of such owner within the meaning of this section when he is on such property in the performance of any duty imposed upon him by the laws of this state or by the laws or postal regulations of the United States, or when he is on such property upon the invitation, express or implied, of the owner.”
Any owner of a dog that has bitten you or a loved one is liable for the injuries that the dog inflicted. Dog bite injuries can include: the puncturing of the skin, cuts, and abrasions. In some cases, wounds can become more serious with the victim suffering broken bones, disfigurement, and permanent disabilities. In some rare cases, a dog bite can lead to death. Between January 1st 2005 and December 31 2017, dogs killed at least 433 people across the nation.
Hospital bills for a dog bite can get as high 10s of thousands of dollars. If the dog owner refuses to cooperate, then you may have to foot the full cost of treatment for an injury where you are not at fault.
Besides the physical injuries, a psychological toll can be put upon the person, leaving them unable to live around dogs for fear of another bite. Post-traumatic stress can affect an individual far longer than a physical injury and can make life hard if the person does not get treated.
