Understanding Liability in Los Angeles Dog Bite Cases

California has what is called a strict liability statute, which basically states that if a dog attacks a person who is in a public place, or lawfully in a private place, the dog’s owner is fully liable for all damages. This is a little different than other injury cases, which usually require proof of negligence.

In the case of dog bites, the owner is liable whether they knew the dog had aggressive tendencies or not. What this means for your case is that you don’t have to prove negligence on the part of the dog owner.

You will simply need to prove that you were lawfully in a private place, or that you were in a public place, and there must be no evidence that you provoked the dog in any way.
