In the eyes of California law, our children are to be treated differently than adults, particularly when it comes to negligence. When it comes to injuries involving children, they are never to blame as they are considered to be more susceptible to injuries due to their underdeveloped nature. Instead, the main question that lies in case of a child's injury is whether the supervising adult was negligent or not. Because adults are far more advanced both physically and mentally, they are held responsible in case a child is injured due to a dog bite, trip and fall, accidental burns, etc.
