Millions of people suffer from dog bite incidents every year. Sadly, thousands of these individuals must seek emergency medical care for their damages, with many more failing to pursue the legal action they should to hold negligent owners accountable. In dog bite cases, owners can be held responsible under two different theories: negligence or strict liability. Negligence is any incident where the owner failed to exercise the expected duty of care in regards to supervising or monitoring their dog.
Under strict liability, an owner may be held liable for the following reasons:
In order to use strict liability, you must be able to prove the owner’s foreknowledge of their dog’s vicious propensity.
