Dog Bite and Animal Attacks


Dog bite attacks are taken into special consideration by the governing state legislatures. The courts follow strict accountability and liability for damages be withheld. Based on this strict liability the owner would be directly responsible for any attack on a unsuspecting victim unless the owner can prove that the victim provoked the animal into the attack. However, if there is any history of attacks in the past, punitive damages can double for a recovery.

The graphic nature of dog bite attacks is apparent in dog’s victims. Disfigurement and impairment can be extremely traumatic and the emotional outcome of these cases can last a very long time after the initial attack.
