26+ Years of Experience as a Dog Bite Attorney Serving Anaheim
Dog bites can range widely in severity, and most people can recover quickly from minor bites. However, a large dog can inflict an unbelievable amount of damage on a person, especially young children. State Farm had to pay out over $104 Million for about 3,700 claims in 2013 (an average of roughly $30,000 per claimant). Of those cases, most of the victims were smaller children. The Orange County Register recently released disturbing footage of an Anaheim mother protecting her 2 year old son from a vicious attack from her neighbor’s dogs, who were initially playing with the boy.

Dog attacks can cause serious injuries and other conditions, including:
- Broken bones
- Psychological conditions, including PTSD
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Puncture wounds
- Traumatic brain injury from being knocked down
- Infection, including rabies infection
Injuries to the face, arms, hands, and legs are common because of the defensive actions people usually take to protect themselves. Serious dog bites can require multiple surgeries, including plastic surgery, to repair the damage.
California Law States Dog Owners Are Strictly Liable for Injuries Caused by Their Dog
California state law supports dog bite victims by requiring pet owners to be responsible for their actions. California holds dog owners strictly liable for damages their dogs cause. In a dog bite injury claim, we need to prove only that:
- The dog bit and injured you
- The defendant owned the dog
- You were in a public place or lawfully on private property when the dog bite occurred
It doesn’t matter whether the owner knew the dog was dangerous beforehand, whether the dog had bitten anyone previously, or if the dog that bit you was of a dangerous breed. Dog owners and/or those who were caring for the dog at the time of the attack are responsible for damages.
