Dog Bites and Animal Negligence


Dog bites are dangerous, painful, and costly. The chances of being bitten by a dog in America are 2% every year. That means that every 40 seconds, in the US, someone seeks medical attention for a dog bite. If a dog has bitten you or someone close to you, you may be entitled to compensation. It is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after the dog bite in order to preserve your rights in this matter.

Legal responsibility for damages resulting in these attacks by dogs is generally considered under Personal Injury Law and referred to as torts. A tort is a wrongful injury to a person or his or her property. Personal injury laws are enacted to prevent harm or to compensate for harm to a person or property. That harm or injury may consist of physical, mental or financial damages. The physical injury due to a dog or animal bite may even be secondary to the mental injury to a person who has been victimized to the extent of permanent scarring and disfigurement. Medical bills and loss of income due to dog bite injuries are examples of financial harm. Law recognizes a civil wrong, or a tort, as grounds for a lawsuit for damages or monetary compensation to injured parties. Damages may include both present and future expected losses.

Considerations for actual liability in dog bite lawsuits are:

  • The owner of a dog or an animal is strictly liable for damage resulting from the animal’s trespass on land owned by the victim of a bite.
  • The owner of a dog or an animal shown to be a prior danger is strictly liable for the injuries caused by the dog or animal. The owner of a wild animal is strictly liable for harm arising from the dangerous characteristic of wild animals of its class.
