Who Pays For Medical Bills if My Dog Bites Someone?
As the owner of a dog who has bitten someone, you will be responsible for any and all medical bills that the victim accrues. This again goes back to the fact that California is a strict liability state – which means that as the owner, you are responsible for keeping anyone who comes in contact with your dog safe.
