Dog Bite Injuries
In California, if you suffer a dog bite the law states that the dog owner is strictly liable to you for the injuries you have suffered.
In most other injury cases the person making the claim has the burden of proving it is someone else’s fault. In a dog bite lawsuit, on the other hand, the burden of proof is on the owner of the animal to try to establish that, for whatever reason, it is not his fault. Dog bites can leave terrible scarring both physically and psychologically. If a dog injured you, and you require plastic surgery, psychological counseling or any other health care professional’s help in order for you to heal, the dog owner is responsible for the damage the dog has done. In many cases, there will be a homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy that will cover the claim.
