Liability Issues in Dog Bite/Animal Attack Cases
When an animal attacks a person, the animal’s owner can be held responsible (liable) for resulting injuries. (In some situations, animal keepers, parents of owners who are minors, and property owners can be held liable as well.) The degree to which the owner is held liable varies state to state; some states hold animal owners “strictly liable” – completely responsible, whether or not they were aware of the animal’s propensity for attack – while other states hold owners partially liable. An owner may be held partially liable in a number of situations; for example, if the victim’s actions provoked the animal, if the victim failed to heed the owner’s warnings about the animal, or if the victim was on the owner’s property illegally (an issue of premises liability).
