The owner of any animal is required by law to restrain his or her animal for public safety reasons; this includes dog owners. There are certain measures that they must take when they have a dog out on a leash or if they have a dog on their property. We can discuss all of these measures with you at your free consultation.
Liability in dog bite cases depends on negligence, even if the owner does not have prior knowledge that the dog was a danger in certain situations. It is their responsibility to take reasonable steps to prevent injury. How these types of cases are won is by detailing how the dog owner was negligent, how they did not take the reasonable steps, and how if they had, the injury would not have occurred. We know these steps and have handled many dog bite cases. Contact us today to discuss your case.
