If you or someone you know has been attacked by a vicious dog please get medical help right away and get information on the owner of the dog to see if they have homeowner's insurance covering the dog attack. In California we have strict liability
so the owner is automatically liable but there are additional factors that are important such as the dog was not on a leash if off the owner's property when the attack occurred, the dog was unprovoked and it always helps to know if the dog has attacked others before.
These cases can be worth six figures if your injuries are serious and the owner has insurance. So please follow up if this happens to you and call a good caring lawyer
like me who specializes in dog bite cases.
