Dog Bite Injury
Domesticated dogs of all breeds are generally nonviolent in nature. Even though most dogs are not likely to bite unless provoked, dogs are by nature unpredictable.
Dog bites are most likely to occur when dogs are:
- Acting to protect its owner or property
- Threatened and lacking alternatives
- Eating or sleeping
- Trying to establish dominance over the bite victim
- Mistreated or chained up
Dog Bite Laws:
Unfortunately, not all dog owners are cautious. If an owner violates animal restraint and confinement laws or knowingly keeps an animal with a history of aggression towards people, the owner may be legally responsible for the resulting bites and injuries. Under certain circumstances, care facilities, handlers, or landlords can also be held accountable for animal bites.

If you or a loved one suffers serious injury or harm because of a dog bite, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses, including but not limited to:
