Typically, these types of injuries occur on the street, as well as during deliveries. Homeowners insurance and building insurance will typically pay for these types of injuries, or the owner will if they do not have insurance.
The most important thing to do in these types of cases is to secure evidence of the dog who caused the injury, as well as the owner’s information — take photos to document everything.
What Can I Get Back After a Dog Attack?
You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and emotional injuries. The compensation can also include future bills and future loss of income.
When is a Dog Owner Liable for A Dog Bite?
In the state of California, Civil Code section 3342 indicates that the owner of a dog may be held liable for the injuries inflicted on another individual by their animal if:
The injury resulted from a dog bite
The injured victim was bitten on public property or on private property that they were lawfully occupying
In the case of dog attacks, California follows the “strict liability” law, which means that the owner is liable for any dog bites that result from their own dog; this applies even when the owner was not aware of acts of aggression coming from their animal.
