Dog Bites in Los Angeles and Orange County
It seems as though one hears about dog attacks almost every day, usually from breeds known to be aggressive, such as Rottweilers, German shepherds, pit bulls, or Doberman pinschers. These attacks are often against small children or innocent neighbors who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some dog bites are provoked by a person who is trespassing on another’s property or who is taunting the dog. In these cases, the liability of the dog owner is not likely to be proven; in fact the victim may be held responsible for his or her own injuries due to his or her behavior.
California has adopted “strict liability” laws in regards to dog bites. This means the owner of the dog is automatically held liable (legally responsible) in a dog bite lawsuit, whether or not the owner knew the dog was liable to attack or did anything to directly influence or cause the dog to attack.
