California Ranks Second for Dog Bite Attacks in the Nation

While most dogs and other pets appear sweet and friendly, a simple head rub could result in a devastating bite or bodily damage. California had the highest number of dog bites, with 451 claims. Over 27,000 people have undergone reconstructive surgery as a result of a dog bite since 2018. The average hospitalization cost of a dog bite could be more than $18,200.

Understanding California Dog Bite Law

Under California law, owners are strictly accountable if their dog assaults and injures another person. Even if the owner was not negligent and their dog had never bitten before, they could still be held accountable for the damage you incurred due to their dog’s assault. Section 3342 of the California Civil Code addresses such liability arising from a dog bite or attack.

How to Prove Negligence in a Dog Bite Case?

In order to establish negligence in a dog bite lawsuit, you must be able to prove:

  • The dog bit the victim in a public area or while the victim was lawfully on private property 
  • The dog bite caused the victim to sustain an injury (or injuries) 
  • The dog bite was a significant element in the injury
