Victims of a severe dog bite, especially if attacked by an aggressive breed such as German Shepherd, Doberman, or Pit Bull Terrier, are urged to contact a personal injury attorney in Irvine experienced in dog bite litigation. A dog owner is strictly liable for bites caused by his dog in the state of California. In this state a dog is not entitled to his first bite.
