If you or a family member has suffered an animal attack, it can be a frightening experience, which can result in considerable injury and disfigurement.

When it comes to dog bites, most states have strict liability laws that hold the owner of the dog totally liable for all damages. In other states, the courts may weigh whether the dog has a history of aggression or scrutinize the victim’s role in the incident. Was the dog provoked by the victim? Was the victim trespassing on the property at the time of the incident? All factors will be looked at to determine the degree of owner liability, if any.
