Potentially Dangerous & Vicious Dogs

California law provides statutory definitions of potentially dangerous and vicious dogs. These are dogs with a history of at least two unprovoked bites in the past 36 months. A dog is considered potentially dangerous if the dog has behaved in a way that resulted in the need for defensive action to prevent bodily injury or has seriously injured or killed a domestic animal. A dog is considered vicious when it inflicts serious injury or kills a person, or the dog continues to display dangerous behavior after classified as dangerous.

Dog Owner Liability

Regardless of whether a dog is classified as potentially dangerous, vicious, or has never showed an ounce of aggression, the dog owner is liable for any damages caused by the dog’s bite. This includes bites that occur in public spaces and those occurring on private property or when the victim was lawfully on private property, including the dog owner’s property. The dog owner is civilly liable for harm caused by the dog and criminal charges may be filed, in certain situations.

The person injured by a dog bite may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
