Get Professional Legal Help - (888) 480-3883

California has a “strict liability” policy when it comes to dog bite cases. This means that dog owners are responsible for their animals if they attack another person: Under State Civil Code, the liable dog owner must pay damages for anyone who has bitten in a public or private place, even on the dog owner’s property. With a skilled Orange County dog bite attorney on your side, you may be able to recover the compensation to which you are truly entitled.

Understanding Dog Owner Liability in Orange County

In order to make a strong legal claim for compensation, you will need to understand California’s strict liability laws. Under these dog bite statutes, the dog owner will always owe compensation to the person who was injured by their dog—except under certain circumstances.

The only exceptions to the strict liability are if the victim:

  • Was trespassing
  • Provoked the dog
  • Was bitten by his employer's dog while on the job, which falls under the Labor Code
  • Performed a paid service involving the dog

(Liability for the dog's behavior begins the moment an individual becomes the owner.)
