The Dog Owners’ Liability Act states that the owner of a dog is responsible for damages (injuries) from a bite or attack on another person or another domestic animal.
The law also says that the owner’s responsibility is not reduced if the owner did not know about the dog’s tendancy to bite or attack.
There can be “contributory negligence” by the injured person if they caused or contributed to the dog’s actions.
Most homeowners have liability insurance that will cover injuries caused by a dog bite or dog attack. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine if insurance is available to cover your claim.
