California Dog Bite Laws

Of the estimated 4.5 million victims of dog bites, approximately half of them are children and the average cost of a hospital stay is just under $20,000. The extent of the injuries range greatly but often leave lasting, if not permanent, scarring and disabilities.

In order to prove liability in California, the plaintiff simply needs to prove that they were injured by the owner’s dog while they were on public property or while they were on private property legally. Possible defenses to liability include denying the dog belongs to them, claiming the dog was provoked, claiming the plaintiff trespassed on private property, and more.

We have a firm grasp of all possible defenses and will work to prove liability in a timely and professional manner.

Through the justice system, we can help prove that the owner of the dog that bit you was negligent in their duties. You shouldn’t have to pay for these injury-related expenses on your own, especially considering they weren’t your fault in the first place. Our Los Angeles dog bite attorney can help you hold the party responsible for your injuries accountable, both legally and financially.
