CALIFORNIA DOG BITE AND ANIMAL ATTACK LAWS
Liability laws pertaining to animal attacks and dog bites vary from state to state. Often, the location of the attack can affect the amount of damages that the plaintiff obtains for his or her injuries. In the state of California, animal owners are held “strictly liable” for damages caused by their animals, even if the animal had never attacked anyone before, the owner was unaware of the animal’s capacity for violence, or the owner took measures to prevent an attack. Given the variance of state laws governing animal attack liability, victims need the guidance of experienced legal professionals to ensure that they are aware of their rights and the relevant laws. Our Lancaster-based dog bite and animal attack attorneys are well-versed in California state laws pertaining to this category of personal injury and can help victims understand their options.
ELEMENTS OF A DOG BITE OR ANIMAL ATTACK CASE
Animal attack cases typically hinge on liability laws related to the owner’s awareness of the animal’s propensity for viciousness and the measures implemented to contain the animal. Animal attack cases usually involve premises liability laws, since animal owners are expected to use “reasonable care” in maintaining their property so as to restrain the animal adequately. In some instances, animal keepers, parents of minors, and landlords can also be held responsible for an animal’s attack. Southern California residents who have suffered a dog bite or animal attack should contact our attorneys serving the Lancaster, Palmdale, and Santa Clarita areas to ensure that the appropriate parties are held liable for the attack.
