Dog Attacks Your Dog. Are You Entitled To Damages?

  • Under California’s dog bite statute, dog owners have a right to sue other dog owners when another dog attacks their own dog. But the process of suing for damages caused to a dog is very different from the process of recovering damages caused to humans. Experienced dog attack attorney in Los Angeles explains that California law classifies dogs as “personal property,” which is why any injury caused to your dog will be classified as “property damage.” And under California law, you are entitled to compensation for property damages.
