An owner of a dog or most any other animal under their care has a responsibility to know the temperament of the animal. If the dog has bitten anyone prior or acted aggressively the law imparts the owner with a duty to use that knowledge to take reasonable precautions to protect persons around the dog. This obligation is especially true if the animal is permitted around children, who are inherently unpredictable and unable to fully understand how their conduct might provoke an animal.
If you or a love one have been bitten, attacked, or injured as the result of a dog, cat or other animal, the owner of the animal is likely at fault and liable for any injuries you suffered as a result, such as lost wages, medical bills and possibly compensation for any physical scars resulting from your injury.
Please give us to discuss the circumstances of your injuries and we can let you know whether you have a case.
