Dog Bite Laws in California

When it comes to dog bites, California is a strict liability state. This means that California dog owners are responsible, or liable, for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by their dog in a public place, or while lawfully in a private place. Dog owners can be held responsible even if:

  • The dog has no history of attacks or vicious behavior
  • The owner is unaware of any past attacks or vicious behavior

For victims of dog bites in California, you do not have to prove liability on the part of the dog owner to collect compensation. As a dog bite victim, you will only have to prove that the dog bite occurred while you were in a public place or, lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s home.
