California is a strict liability state when it comes to people who are bitten by another’s dog. If a person is somewhere in public or lawfully in a private place, where they are allowed to be and are bitten by a dog – the owner of the dog is presumed to be liable.
Dog bites often result in infection, permanent scarring, and disfigurement, as well as tissue and nerve damage. In addition to the pain and suffering from the physical injuries, the memory of the attack can lead to emotional distress and anxiety when around dogs.
