In an instant, a seemingly innocent interaction with a dog can take a dangerous turn. Every year, emergency rooms see hundreds of thousands of victims of dog bits, most of which are children.

At Jones & Swanson, we have more than 75 years of legal experience helping clients recover fair and just compensation for their injuries.

Proving Liability in a Dog Bite Injury Case

Because the burden of proof rests on the victim, it’s imperative that you have a skilled personal injury attorney on your side who knows the ins and outs of the legal system. When pursuing a claim, you can expect that the animal owner responsible for your injuries will argue that they had no prior knowledge regarding their dog’s behavior. At our firm, you can rest assure that we will be thorough in our investigation to uncover and prove liability in your case.

In order to prove liability in a dog bite injury case, you must show that:

  • The owner knew the animal had aggressive behavior
  • The owner was careless with the animal and allowed it to leave the property or roam free
  • You did not provoke the animal to act out aggressively
