DOG BITE FAQ
What Can I Do In California If A Dog Bites Me?
In California, the owner of a dog who bites another human being is strictly liable and I recommend that if you’ve been bitten by a dog, is to immediately contact the owner of that dog. Get their name and address, and find out if they’ve got homeowner’s insurance. The next thing I recommend that you do is to go to an emergency room. The physician at the emergency room is under a legal obligation to notify animal control of any human bitten by a dog. After that, I think the next most important thing to do is call an attorney who specializes in handling these types of cases.
