We know that dog bite victims need aggressive, compassionate advocacy in order to recover fair compensation and to help ensure that their rights are protected.

How Do I Prove That the Dog's Owner Is Liable?

In a dog bite case, the owner of the dog is typically liable for the victim's damages. In many cases, the owner is an individual, but the owner can also be a municipality or a business. The owner's liability depends on the circumstances of the attack and, in some cases, the victim's own conduct. In general, the owner is liable if the dog had a history of aggressive behavior or if the owner failed to take the reasonable steps that would prevent the dog from attacking.

In a dog bite case, the victim will likely need to prove four key points to establish liability:

  1. The victim was attacked by the dog
  2. The dog had a history of aggressive behavior
  3. The dog's owner knew or reasonably should have known that the dog had a history of aggressive behavior
  4. The victim was harmed as a result of being attacked by the dog

To prove these points, the victim may need to obtain the dog's medical records, the dog's owner's medical records, and the dog's owner's insurance policy. These records can help the victim's attorney show that the dog's owner knew or reasonably should have known that the dog had a history of aggressive behavior. If the owner knew or reasonably should have known that the dog had a history of aggression, the owner may be liable for the victim's damages.

Recovering Compensation for Your Damages

Dog bite victims may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Permanent disability

Our team will work to show that a dog's owner knew or should have known about a dog's history of aggression in a dog bite case. If the owner knew or reasonably should have known that the dog had a history of aggression, the owner may be liable for the victim's damages.

In addition to proving the dog's owner's liability, the victim's attorney will also have to calculate the victim's total damages. In a dog bite case, the victim's total damages will likely include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent disfigurement or disability. Our team can help you calculate your total damages and work to prove that the owner should be held liable for your total damages.
