Man's best friend isn't always so friendly


Many people in California have household pets, and an overwhelming favorite in many homes is a dog. In fact, more than half of all households in the U.S. have a pet, totaling over 80 million homes across the nation.

Who is responsible for paying compensation when a dog bites?


Under California law, dog owners are strictly liable for the damages their pets cause, especially if the dog attacks, bites or otherwise injures another person.

Depending on the situation, the dog's owner may be covered by insurance.
