Strict Liability for Dog Bites
Strict liability laws are meant to protect injury victims and hold dog owners accountable for resulting injuries and damages. With few exceptions, if you were bitten by a dog, the owner is strictly liable for all of your losses. You will not be required to prove that the owner was negligent or otherwise at fault for your damages. Strict liability laws are only applicable to dog bite cases, however.
Strict liability does not apply to cases that involve other types of pet injuries, such as being knocked down or tripping and falling over a dog. Proving claims for injuries other than dog bites requires you to demonstrate that the defendant’s negligence caused your injuries and damages. Unlike strict liability, evidence of the plaintiff’s misconduct must be provided to prove a negligence claim.
Permanent and Fatal Dog Attack Injuries
In the most severe dog attack cases, injuries can be permanent and debilitating or sometimes, fatal. These cases can be life-changing and devastating for the dog attack victims and their families. If your resulting injuries are permanent or you lost a loved one in a dog attack, you need an attorney who has the skills, knowledge, and experience to accurately value the full extent of your losses and aggressively pursue your claim.
