If you were bitten by a dog there are laws in place to help you. Dog bite laws are a mixture of city and county ordinances and state law that establishes when the dog’s owner is liable to the bite victim. A few states use the “one bite rule,” which shields the dog’s owner from liability in that one incident, unless the owner knew the dog bites. These laws establish proper control of the dog and when the dog’s owner is liable to the bite victim.
Most states are strict liability jurisdictions, meaning the dog’s owner or controller is liable to the victim unless the dog owner has a valid defense. Find out if you are entitled to compensation by talking to a dog bite attorney.
