Dog bites and strict liability
Dog owners are responsible for their dogs’ actions. However, the injured person must be able to prove the dog owner was negligent and that this negligence caused the injury. People who were legally on the person’s property and those who did not provoke the dog are generally successful in obtaining compensation. Property owners are typically not held liable in the event of trespassing or if the individual provoked the dog. Our firm is highly adept at addressing the many issues that are involved in dog bite claims. We are often able to investigate the dog’s history, uncovering a history of violence or past aggression.
