California Dog Bite


Under California Civil Code Section 3342, otherwise known as the Dog Bite Statute, a dog owner is strictly liable for any injuries caused by his or her dog. This means that the dog owner does not need to have knowledge of his or her dog’s dangerous propensities. They are simply liable for the dog’s actions, even if it is the first time the dog has attacked.

Dog bites and attacks can have physical, emotional and financial impact on all aspects of your life. Our Southern California dog bite attorneys have the knowledge of the law and are prepared to fight for your legal rights.

What To Do After a Dog Bite or Attack

If you or a loved one is attacked or bitten by a dog, you need to take certain important actions to protect your legal rights. Our attorneys have outlined some of the more important steps that you need to take, including:

  1. Identify the dog that bit you.
  2. Identify the dog’s owner. Obtain the owner’s information, including name, address, and telephone number.
  3. Get the name, address, and telephone number of any witnesses to the attack. Generally, dog owners will deny an attack or a bite, fearing that their dog might be taken away or put to sleep. In such cases, a witness statement or testimony will be imperative in getting you the compensation that you deserve.
  4. Contact Animal Services Agency or Law Enforcement to file an incident report.
  5. Take photographs of your wounds, bruises, and clothing.
  6. Obtain medical treatment.
  7. Contact the Law Offices of Samer Habbas.

To fully protect your rights, you should avoid doing the following:

  1. Sign any documents prepared by the dog owner, landlord of the property where the bite took place, insurance representatives, or adverse attorneys.
  2. Not seek medical treatment.

This Personal Injury Law firm is the best. The associates and lawyer was very responsive and such a polite company to be with. This was the second time I had been in an accident so I was hesitant of hiring a lawyer for my incident but they definitely changed my feeling of having an attorney settle for a case. Very understanding and honest. I would recommend it to anyone with no hesitations. Thank you Samer, Mike and everyone at the Law Office.read more
