Dog Bite Laws in California & Common Injuries
California is a strict liability state, meaning that if a dog bites another individual, it is the responsibility of the owner. In addition, if the dog escapes from a fenced-in yard and attacks an individual, the owner is responsible for that as well. Dog owners in Santa Clarita are required by law to keep a secure watch on their dogs and to take every precaution to keep them from attacking others.
Common injuries resulting from a dog attack include the following:
- Broken Bones
Often, the victims of dog attacks are children, making the extent of these injuries much worse. In the worst case scenarios, the victim may be fatally wounded due to the attack. In these cases, it would be appropriate to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one.
