California Dog Bite Laws
California’s dog bit claims will fall under a “strict liability” rule under Section 2234 of the California Civil Code.
The strict liability rule is in place to ensure pet owners are held liable for any injuries their pet has caused even if they have no history of being vicious. This statue is generally applicable to injuries or traumas that are caused by bites. There may be exceptions if the victim was trespassing, the dog was a military or police animal, or if the victim provoked the animal. Moreover, there may be instances when someone other than the animal owner has liability (which may not be strict liability). The law in this area is nuanced and often times complicated.
