The state of California institutes Strict Liability on owners of dog who have bitter and harmed others. California Civil Code Section 3342: Under California Civil codes strict liability is placed where dog bite occurs when a victim in on public property or lawfully in private properly. The code states, “The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.” What is Strict Liability: The vast minority of personal injury causes of action are based on the negligence theory of law meaning that an at fault party breached a duty of reasonable care which caused serious injuries to a victim. Under a strict liability cause of action a plaintiff no longer has the burden of proving breach of a duty. The mere fact that the dog bit another person automatically establishes the breached duty of the dog owner. Thus, Under the doctrine of strict liability, a person may be held liable, regardless of the degree of care exercised, for damages or injuries caused by himself of his property (ie his dog). Legal Assistance: Such legal terminology can be difficult to comprehend for individuals not adept at personal injury legal analysis.
