Dangerous Dogs - Certain Breeds Account for Majority of Dog Bites

Dogs provide companionship and perhaps some protection. Most people want a loving four-legged friend, not an animal that can maim or kill. Unfortunately, California has the dubious distinction of being "the dog bite capital of the United States," according to the LA Times. Approximately one-third of all homeowner insurance claims in the state result from dog bites. Under California law, the owner is liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten.

No "Freebies" for Owners of Dogs Who Bite

California dog owners lead the nation in numbers. They own the most dogs, with at least one dog in residence in nearly 40% of their households. They also spend the most on tax-paid euthanasia, and pay out more through insurance dog bite settlements than any other U.S. state. Clearly, dog ownership is quite popular here. But, as State Farm has reported, so are dog bites. And it's important to note that California is a strict liability state with respect to dog attacks.
