QUESTION: I was jogging when I was attacked and bitten by a pitbull. I had bites on my hands and legs, but not very serious injuries. However, I am now very terrified of going out to jog after the attack. The owner gave up the ownership of the dog. Can I still hold him responsible? ANSWER: The laws of the state of California state that generally, the owner of the dog is responsible for the damages or injury that his/her pet might cause if the attack happens in a public.
