Redondo Beach Animal Attack Attorney
California Civil Code Section 3342 states that strict liability for a dog bite exists with the owner. Simply put, if the dog bites you, the person responsible for that dog is immediately deemed negligent. There is no "free bite rule." Dog owners who fall short in restraining and controlling their dogs must be held accountable.
Strict liability does not prevent us from conducting an in-depth investigation. The breed of the dog may be known for being dangerous and aggressive. Multiple attacks may subject the owner of the dog to punitive damages.
At the Law Office of Daniel W. Dunbar, we seek justice on your behalf. Most cases involve some form of plastic surgery to the victim. However, no amount of surgery can help with the trauma and outright fear of dogs that exists following the tragic event.
