Understanding Fault

When it comes to dog bites, it is important to determine who is responsible for the incident. Generally, the dog’s owner is liable for any damages resulting from a dog bite. Owners are primarily considered responsible for any incident that occurs on their property, including compensation for injuries that result from an out-of-control dog. Additionally, in many cases, the dog owner may be covered by their homeowner’s insurance, which can provide further compensation for the victim.

Types Of Compensation

If a dog has bitten you, several types of compensation may be available to you. This can include medical bills, physical and occupational therapy, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
