Defending Those Who Are Hurt By Negligent Actions

Dog Bite Attorney in St. Paul, MN

"Man's best friend" can be your worst enemy. People have dogs for many reasons, and most owners are very responsible for managing their dogs. But even a well-behaved dog can attack when it feels threatened.

Bitten, Mauled, or Attacked by a Dog in Minnesota?

Being bitten or attacked by a dog or other animal is extremely frightening. An attack can leave a victim not only severely injured but also traumatized. Often, dog bite victims are left with both physical and emotional scars. Minnesota has a strict liability dog bite statute. That means that it is not necessary to prove the owner or person harboring the dog acted negligently. As a result, Minnesota dog bite law is quite favorable to dog bite victims. It covers both bites and other injuries and applies not only to the owner of the attacking dog but also to the person who harbors or keeps the dog. As the victim of a dog bite, the law is clearly on your side.

The Minnesota Dog Bite Statute (below) is written to protect the innocent from dog attacks.

347.22 Damages, Owner Liable

If a dog, without provocation, attacks or injures any person who is acting peaceably in any place where the person may lawfully be, the owner of the dog is liable in damages to the person so attacked or injured to the full amount of the injury sustained. The term "owner" includes any person harboring or keeping a dog but the owner shall be primarily liable. The term "dog" includes both male and female of the canine species.

Dog Bites & Animal Attacks: Not the Time for Minnesota Nice

Sometimes people tell us that they don't want to "sue" a friend or family member after a dog has bitten their child. "Suing the dog owner" is not as accurate a description of the legal remedy as is "filing an insurance claim." Dog owners whose pets have caused harm to someone else are usually relieved to learn that plastic surgery and psychological counseling are available for a traumatized dog bite victim.

You did not ask to be bitten by a dog. Our experience allows us to reassure them that, in most cases, caring dog owners will be glad to know that medical costs are covered for the dog bite victim.
