Dog bites can have devastating consequences, including permanent physical and psychological injuries. If you or someone close to you has suffered a dog bite injury due to the negligence of a dog owner, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses. An experienced dog bite injury claim attorney can help you fight for maximum compensation.
The “Dog Bite” statute imposes strict liability upon the owner of a dog when that dog bites another person even if the owner of the dog does not have knowledge of the dog’s vicious propensities. The intent in adopting this statute was that all dogs have a potential for biting so the owners of the dogs should compensate individuals innocently injured by the dog bite.
