In California, the owner of any dog is liable for damage suffered by someone who is bitten by the dog while in a public place or legally in a private place. The dog owner is responsible even if the dog bites the owner's property. It does not matter if the owner new dog was bad or not. A person is considered to be legal in the private property when he is on the property in fulfillment of any obligation imposed on him under the laws of California or in the United States laws or postal regulations, and even when private individuals on the invitation of the Property Owner may be invited or understood.
Those who break into a private home and a dog's dog would have no reason for action. If your dog rushes out and bites someone who knocks on your door and bites someone there to transform you into his religion or sell you a subscription to an unofficial newspaper, they would have one thing to action because of the implied invitation. If you happen to have a fence that is locked or closed and with a sign indicating that no one is implicitly or explicitly invited, it is unlikely that you are in charge, but exceptions to this rule apply.
According to California, if you're the bite where you're entitled to be, you automatically win responsibility, and it's all about proving damages. If you are bitten after ignoring a sign saying that no invitation is made to enter my property explicitly or implicitly, then another standard applies. The standard is one of negligence, where the owners stated reasonable. Training an attack dog to attack someone when entering the property is probably not reasonable. There is also the postman exception, the mail man must release the owner's mail and if the bite would have a trial against the dog owner, whether there is a sign or not.
The best way to avoid responsibility if you own a dog may be to put up a sign saying someone who says there is no implied invitation to this property, hold out, everyone else considering that you come into this the property, you assume the risk of getting a bit of a dog. It would not eliminate the risk of responsibility for the dog biting a person, especially if it is at night and there is no light on the sign, but otherwise if the sign can be read, it would help minimize or eliminate responsibility.
If you happen to be a victim, it's unlikely that you had fair warning and you became bitten when you entered someone's home. A dog bite or dog attack is a special type of personal injuries. It is a kind of statement that is not evaluated by a computer. The type of compensation that is undertaken is often for pain, suffering, emotional distress, abuse, loss or earning, reasonable and necessary healthcare costs and future medical treatment. If the dog attacks while the victim did something illegal, it is unlikely that a trial can be maintained.
A person can not raise a trial when a dog is a military dog or polish dog, and the person who was bitten was annoying, harassed or provoked the dog and the dog defended himself. A person can not bring an action against a military dog or polish dog if the dog assisted an employee at the Office in fear or possession of a suspect where the worker has reasonable suspicion of suspected participation in criminal activity. There is no clear line about what reasonable suspicion means. No lawsuits are allowed when the military or the dog assists an employee in the investigation of a crime or a possible crime, in execution of a delay and in the defense of a peacekeeper or other person.
If the person such as the bite of a military or polishund is not a party to or participant in or suspected of being a party to or participant in, the act or actions that led to the dog being used in military or police work may bring a trial. It is not uncommon for passersby or assistant to be bitten by a poorly trained dog.
In order for the police and military dog's exemptions to apply, the agency must also have adopted a written policy on the necessary and appropriate use of a dog for what kind of work the dog should do.
If a dog bites a human, the dog owner must take steps to remove the risk of a piece of bites from the same dog to another person.
If the dog has bitten twice, someone, DA, or City Attorney may bring an action in court to determine whether the delivery and treatment of the dog is sufficient to keep it out of danger for other persons. The court has the power to, after hearing, order that removes the dog from the places where it is restricted, or to destroy it if necessary.
Another standard applies when the dog has been trained to fight. If the dog has been trained to fight, only one person is required for any person, district attorney or city attorney to bring an action in court to determine if the dog's influence is sufficient to keep the dog from biting another person.
