Can you be held liable if your dog bites someone at a dog park?

Dog parks are great places to sit back and relax as you watch your pet run free for a while. You may find enjoyment in seeing your dog make new friends and even learn a few new social skills. However, dog parks are not always friendly places. Incidents of bites at dog parks are very prevalent. If your dog bites another person, you may be liable.

In California, the dog bite statute states that you as the owner of the dog will be liable for damages if it occurred in a public place or at a private place that the other person was lawfully able to be in. The statute does not cover dog attacks, only dog bites. California is a strict liability state which means the owner of the dog is responsible for its actions.

Importance of uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage

Being on the road presents a variety of risks. It’s obvious you should have insurance coverage, but is there a certain kind you may be overlooking?

Many people elect to ignore the necessity of uninsured and underinsured motorists’ coverage. However, this is also a critical type of coverage, especially if you’re on the road a lot, such as during a commute. This type of coverage can protect you from unforeseen headaches and financial loss, should you be involved in an accident.
