Dog bite claims fall under the umbrella of personal injury law, where an injured party has the legal right to seek compensation for injuries caused by a dog bite.

California law provides that the owner of a dog is liable for the damages suffered by anyone who is bitten while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner's property. The fact that a dog does not have prior attacks, or that the owner has no awareness of a dog's viciousness does not mean that you are not entitled to compensation.

The California dog bite statute can impute "strict liability" on the owner's of vicious animals. Strict liability means that a person is liable for damages even if the person used ordinary care, and therefore was not negligent in keeping or controlling the animal. A person who can prove the animal's dangerous nature or trait and the keeper's "knowledge" of it, need not prove negligence in failing to restrain or confine it. Actual notice is not required. An owner's knowledge can be "constructive" wherein an owner can be liable if she could have learned of the propensity through reasonable inquiry. Additionally, an owner may be liable if his employees, agents, partners or family knew of the animal's dangerous propensities.
