Are dog owners strictly liable for dog bites?

It depends where the dog bite happened. Some states hold dog owners strictly liable for bite injuries. Other states require the victim to prove the dog owner was acting negligently when you were bit. A personal injury attorney will know the applicable rule and build your claim to meet all necessary legal requirements.

Should I call animal control after a dog bite?

Yes. Calling animal control helps document the dog bite incident. It’s helpful evidence when presenting a claim to the dog owner’s insurance company. Additionally, if the dog has a history of attacks, it’s best for animal control to intervene and prevent further harm.

Do I have a claim if I was bitten at an animal shelter?

You likely do. Just because you were at an animal shelter to adopt does not mean you assumed the risk of an injury. You should know that pursuing a claim does not mean you are putting the shelter out of business. Animal shelters keep insurance so they can continue to do the good work of adopting out pets. We will work with the shelter’s insurance company to get your injuries treated and compensated.

We pay a lot of money for insurance. When the unexpected happens, the insurance company needs to fulfill their end of the bargain. The lawyers at Sam & Ash have the reputation to make sure you’re taken seriously. Our priority is ensuring you are made whole again.
