The California dog bite lawyer must prove at least the following items for a dog bite victim's legal case:
(a) The identity of the owner of the dog and its owner (stray dogs can exclude this if the owner is not identified);
(b) Any insurance connected with the dog bite and the dog's owner (namely, homeowner's insurance);
(c) The dog bit the victim and caused bodily injury (medical damages); this also means the dog bite caused suffering, loss or harm; also known as general damages like "pain and suffering."
(d) The dog bite victim, at the time of the dog bite, was in a public place or lawfully in a private place, which could also be the property of the dog owner; and the dog bite or attack could not be excused because of any of the legal exceptions listed in another FAQ in the California Dog Bite and Animal Attacks FAQ on my website.
