In California, the owner of a dog that bites a human being is strictly liable to the person bitten. A bite in California is defined as a breaking of the skin. The person who’s been bitten is entitled to recover full and fair compensation for all of their out of pocket expenses and a fair and reasonable amount of money for their pain and suffering, disfigurement, scarring, and future medical bills.
