There is no such thing as a free bite for California dogs and their owners... strict liability is the law of the land... should one's pooch sink a tooth or two into the flesh of a visitor, then the owner should contact his or her home owner's insurance company and see if there is coverage... if not the cost of an hour of time with a local personal injury defense lawyer may be well worth the information and initial guidance obtained.
