Who Is Responsible For A Dog Bite?

Many individuals may be responsible if a dog attacks, including owners, landlords, property managers and animal keepers. To determine if someone is liable, the court examines your case with the following questions in mind:

  • Was appropriate signage in place?
  • Was the dog restrained or in an enclosed area like a fenced yard?
  • Who is responsible for the maintenance of the dog?
  • Was the dog owned and maintained in accordance with local ordinances?
  • Was the injured party acting in a manner that would be considered reasonable?

In a successful personal injury case, a victim may receive compensation for a variety of injury-induced needs. They can collect for their immediate and follow-up medical care and their time away from work, among other types of compensation.
