What makes dog bite and attacks injuries so challenging is the fact that many of these incidents often occur in the homes of friends, neighbors and colleagues. This means victims of dog bites and attacks in these scenarios are often uncomfortable or even reluctant to pursue personal injury lawsuits against their friends or close acquaintances. In California, however, if the dog’s owner is liable in a dog bite or attack lawsuit and he or she owns a home, their homeowner’s insurance’s general liability provision could cover any awards sought by the plaintiff. This means that in many cases it is unnecessary to be forced to face your neighbors and colleagues in court.
