We love dogs and all animals.  Many people certainly love their dogs. It is important to remember that any dog can bite, and our dog bite lawyers have seen serious dog bite injuries caused by all types and sizes of dogs.

Under California law, dog owners are strictly liable if their dog bites someone. This means if a dog bites another person, the owner is liable for that person’s injuries even if the owner did nothing wrong and the dog has never bitten anyone before. There are two limits to this liability: first, you can’t provoke the dog, and second, you must either be in a public place or lawfully on private land. For example, if you are trespassing and a dog bites you, you may not be protected.  Continue Reading

California is currently in a state of emergency because of fires burning throughout the state. On the morning of August 8, 2018, a 51-year-old man, Forrest Gordon Clark, was arrested at his home in connection with the large forest fire in the Cleveland National forest, that has burned over 18,000 acres. According to ABC 7 News, the Orange County fire authority became suspicious of Clark when they discovered the origin of the fire was near the cabin he owns. So far, no one has been injured but many cabins and homes have burned, and firefighters fear more structures could be in harm’s way.

Currently, investigators believe the fire was an intentional act. They have been gathering evidence to support this claim. For example, the fire originated near Clark’s cabin, and of the 14 cabins in the area, Clark’s is the only one still standing. Clark also sent an email to the volunteer fire chief last week warning, “This place will burn” after a dispute with his neighbors.
