Representing Animal Bite Victims Across Rancho Cucamonga
Dog bite attacks can happen when you least expect them to. Children are especially vulnerable to attacks from canines due to their small size and fragile frames. In fact, a majority of dog bite attacks happen to children under 14 years old.

California's Strict Liability Dog Bite Law
In California, dog owners are held strictly responsible for the actions of their dogs and they hold a legal responsibility to prevent their pets from harming other individuals. It does not matter if the dog owner had no knowledge of the dog's prior aggression of vicious behavior in the past. The dog owner can be held liable for any damages or injuries caused by their dog, as long as the victim was lawfully in a public or private place. Dog owners are usually not liable for injuries sustained by trespassers.
