What are my rights as a dog bite victim?
California is a strict liability state. What this means for victims of dog attacks is that the owner of the dog can be held liable for financial damages, so long as you were in a public area or legally in a private place, even if the dog had no history of biting people. The owner cannot claim they were unaware of any aggressive tendencies on the part of the dog to avoid being held liable.
The Orange County personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Scott D. Hughes can fight to hold the dog owner responsible for neglecting to take reasonable measures to secure their dog from biting. A successful injury claim can recover the compensation to cover your medical losses and even pain and suffering.
