Liability In Car Accidents Involving Loose Animals
Dog owners in California have a responsibility to keep their animals secured. Dog owner’s are held strictly liable if their animal injures another person that was lawfully on public property. A victim or their family may be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury claim against the dog owner’s home insurance policy. Depending on the facts of any case, there may be multiple sources of potential negligence. If a driver hits a pedestrian that was previously involved in an accident they may face civil liability as well. According to the California vehicle code, all drivers are expected to maintain a safe distance with the vehicle in front of them. If a driver hits a pedestrian or rear-ends another vehicle this is usually fairly strong evidence that they were driving too fast or were not paying attention. A victim or their family will have the ability to seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
