Rapper French Montana Sued After Alleged Dog Bite Attack

dog attack

A person suing rapper French Montana claims that after they arrived at his Calabasas home to perform landscaping work, the rapper’s dog attacked and bit them.

A man claims that he received an invitation to the rapper’s home in 2019 to provide landscaping services, and according to legal documents obtained by The Blast, he is suing Montana in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The worker claims that on November 3, 2019, they suffered a dog bite from a dog that was “roaming around the property.”

 The Dog Wasn’t Restrained

In the court filing, the landscaper says the rapper and his team knew that the dog was outside of its enclosure and allowed the dog with a prior history of attacking people to roam freely, unsecured.

The lawsuit points out several times the rapper was made aware of the dog’s viciousness because he has been sued for a similar incident in the past.

The landscaper claims it was Montana’s responsibility to keep the dog under restraint around the days or hours any workers or guests arrive on the property.

The victim also said the rapper failed to post a sign or take other measures to warn them about the dog’s presence.

The lawsuit doesn’t go into how bad the injuries from the dog bite were, but does state that Montana should be held liable for the gardener’s pain and suffering due to “personal injuries and physical injuries.”

According to The Blast, two people who were on Montana’s property with his permission while working on a security system and another who was cleaning his pool filed lawsuits several years ago claiming they had been bit by dogs.

It is unclear if the dog mentioned in the most recent lawsuit attacked those people.

Laws and Liability Issues

Under California law, dog owners can be held liable for the injuries and damages their pets cause.

According to California’s Civil Code Section 3342,

“The owner of any dog is liable for the damages suffered by any person who is bit by the dog while in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the owner of the dog’s property, regardless of the dog’s previous viciousness or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.”

In such cases, injured victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, hospitalization, surgeries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Injured victims would also be well advised to contact an experienced Los Angeles dog bite injury lawyer who has successfully handled dog bite cases and can help them secure fair and full compensation for all their losses.
