Determining Liability

Many unknowing and unsuspecting people are attacked by dogs due to their owners not taking appropriate preventative measures. If a dog commonly demonstrates aggressive behavior, it is the owner’s responsibility to prevent the dog from attacking. However, even if aggressive behavior is uncharacteristic of a dog, the owner can still be held liable.

A dog’s owner could be determined liable if:

  • The injury was caused by a dog bite
  • The injury took place lawfully on private property or on public property
  • The injury occurred within the limits of a city or town
  • The dog was not provoked to attack

If you have been bitten by a dogs and would like to file an injury claim, you must do so with the state’s civil court system within three years of the attack. If you miss this three year window, you may not be able to successfully file a lawsuit with the court.
