What Happens if My Dog Bites Someone?
That is a very important question to be answered when it comes to all dog bite cases. Under the strict liability law, you, as the owner are responsible if your dog happens to bite anyone. You are liable for any damages, injuries, etc. that your dog has caused under California Civil Code 3342; UNLESS and only unless your dog attacks someone for self defense reasons – your dog was being attacked by another dog, another person, or if your dog was defending you, then you will not be liable for injuries caused to the other party.
