Dogs may be man’s best friend, but sadly, the Center For Disease Control reports approximately 5 million dog bites annually in the United States. Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and Huskies are the breeds most commonly associated with dog bites. Attacks can happen with any breed at any time.
Unfortunately, these incidents often result in something much more severe than a small dog bite. In fact, serious injuries or death (especially amongst children) are usually devastating outcomes.
California, in particular, is a strict liability state when it comes to dog-related attacks. This is crucial for dog owners to understand. It means they must assume absolute legal responsibility for injuries caused by their canine. Regardless of a dog never showing past aggression or an owner not demonstrating negligence, they can still expect to be held fully responsible.
