A dog bite or other animal inflicted injuries can leave traumatizing physical and emotional scars. Animal inflicted wounds often require expensive surgeries, leaving physical and financial reminders of the attack.

California law invokes “strict liability” when dogs attack others, meaning the dog owner is strictly liable for injuries caused by their dog. The law does not allow for a dog owner to dispute who was at fault.
