Dog Attacks are Strict Liability Cases

In Minnesota dog attacks are deemed to be strict liability cases. This means that the owner of the dog is liable for injuries caused by their dog, unless you provoked the dog.  Dog attacks are becoming more prevalent in our society.

Dog Attacks are Painful and Emotional Injuries

Dog attacks are painful and emotional injuries.  It is not uncommon for the attack to cause in teeth punctures, stitches, scarring or the treatment for rabies.  If you have been attacked by a dog you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries.  Call Scott at once if you or someone close to you has been injured, seriously hurt or died as a result of an unsafe product.  We will act immediately for you, investigate your case and see if we can help.

Owners are Responsible for Damages

Owners usually fail to train their dog(s) properly, neglect to restrain the dog correctly or, in the worst circumstances, actually train the dog to be vicious.  Dog owners are liable for damages as long as the dogs were not provoked.


We Must Establish that the Dog Attack was not Provoked

Insurers oftentimes allege that the dog was provoked as a defense.  We need to establish that the dog was not provoked and then you will be entitled to compensation for wage loss, medical bills and pain and suffering for your injuries.  We assist you in gathering information, taking photos and discussing facts to fully analyze your case.  We work to get you the best possible recovery.  If you, a family member or friend have been injured in a dog attack you should seek medical attention immediately, call 911 for emergency assistance, take notes of the incident and take photos of the scene and injuries.
