A dog bite can be extremely traumatic for the victim, especially in the event of wrongful or catastrophic death. For vulnerable parties, a dog bite can leave emotional scars or conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder. For example, a child who was bitten by a dog may develop a fear of dogs or of going outside.
Dog bites are generally governed by the specific state statute. California law Section 3342 outlines the legal processes in a dog bite case. This law states that the owner of a dog is liable for damages a person suffers due to a bite from the dog in a public place or a private place that the person was lawfully within. This is the case regardless of the owner’s knowledge of the dog’s violent tendencies. The “owner” can be anyone who is charge of controlling the dog at the time of the attack. In many cases if the dog bites someone, the owner is strictly liable for damages. The most important thing to do after a dog attack is to seek medical attention. Your prognosis may be better the faster doctors treat these injuries.
