Personal injury cases arise from animal or dog bites. An animal’s owner is held to a strict standard and can be held liable for an attack, a wrongful death, or a pedestrian accident. Similar to premises liability, animal and dog owners have a responsibility to safely maintain control or contain their animal or dog and are liable for any injury caused. These cases may require looking at the animal’s history if there are prior attacks, and what remedial actions the owner took (if any). The legal standard applied to a dog bite case is that of negligence, and this requires showing the owner breached their duty to keep people safe from harm by the animal.
