California law enforces Strict Liability for Dog Bite Injuries

Strict Liability means that there is no need to provide proof of fault. That means if a dog bites a person, then there is no court fight over responsibility. The question to ask is simple:

"How much money are you entitled to for your dog bite injuries?"



Legal proceedings can be complex, and having professional legal advice is very beneficial. Here are some of the steps your lawyer will take on your behalf to help win your case:


Gather evidence and medical documents

Get medical treatment and make sure to keep all relevant documents that you can use as evidence.


Identify the Dog Owner

Determine who the owner of the dog is. If you’re unsure, you can try to gather information from witnesses or consult public records.


Understand the law

Get familiar with California’s dog bite laws. Dog owners are generally held strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs in public places or when the victim is lawfully on private property. Be sure to be aware of any specific local or county regulations that may apply


Notify the owner

Your attorney will inform the dog owner about the incident and your intention to seek compensation for your injuries. It’s best to do this in writing and keep a copy of the notification for your records.


File a claim

Prepare and submit a claim with the dog owner’s homeowner’s insurance company (if applicable) or directly with the owner if they don’t have insurance. Make sure to include a demand letter outlining the incident, your injuries, medical expenses, and any other damages you’ve suffered


Negotiate or consider mediation

If there were any witnesses present at the time of your dog bite injury in Orange County, make sure to get their contact information.


Small Claims Court

If negotation or mediation doesn't lead to a resolution, your attorney must file a lawsuit for damages in superior court

Do you have any questions about the process? It’s time to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. RMD Law specializes in dog bite injury cases. Ensure your rights are protected and get the maximum compensation you deserve.

Auto v. Auto Settlement

Confidential bad faith settlement – a negligent driver t-boned our client at a red light resulting in severe spinal injuries. The defendant’s insurance company unreasonably refused to pay the $100K policy limit. RMD Law filed a lawsuit seeking the true value of the case. Policy was opened, and the client settled for an amount vastly higher than the original limits.

The lawyers at RMD are everything you could want. They are experts in their field, and extremely efficient, thorough and caring. They called me back immediately and spent a substantial amount of time explaining the process to me and quite honestly calming me down. I never felt pressured or felt a salesman vibe. I did get the sense that I was in good hands. They handled everything with minimal stress for me, which was key. Thanks for everything.

I have worked with John, a managing partner, and have been very happy with his casual every-man approach to some rather complex issues. He put things in plain, easy to digest language and made me feel comfortable with the process and his handle on the situation. Would definitely recommend.

John went above and beyond to assist me with my personal injury case after I was involved in a car accident. I spoke to several attorneys regarding my case and although I decided against hiring one due to the minor damages on my car, John was the only attorney I felt like I could trust. I was truly blown away by his kindness, honesty, and willingness to answer all of my questions and go over different options with me. He truly went above and beyond and showed a great amount of compassion and integrity. If I'm ever involved in an accident again, I will not hesitate to call John at RMD Law.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dog bite laws differ on a state-by-state basis. In California, the law states that a dog owner can be found strictly liable for injuries caused by his or her dog. In other words, if you are bitten by a dog while on public property, or lawfully on private property, and injured from the attack, the dog owner is liable for your injuries.

Although California law holds the dog owner liable, the vast majority of dog bite cases are settled with that individual’s homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy. Knowing this information often provides many of my clients some sense of relief, especially those clients who have a personal relationship with the dog’s owner and are hesitant to sue that individual personally.

At RMD Law, we believe that reputation is everything. When clients trust us with their cases, we do everything in our power to help guide them. That means personal service and sharp advocacy. We care about the details of your case because that is how we can get you the best settlement.
