Minnesota Dog Bite Attorney

Every year in the U.S., approximately 4.7 million people are bitten by ferocious or domesticated dogs. In the state of Minnesota, if you are bitten by a dog and not found trespassing or provoking the dog, then you are protected under the dog bite statute:

Minnesota’s Laws Favor Victims of Dog Bites

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. See Minn. Stat. Ann. sec. 347.22: Damages, owner liable.

The dog owner’s home or rental insurance is liable for your medical bills, lost wages and claim for pain and suffering.  Unfortunately certain breeds of dogs, like pit bulls, often carry the “feral” stigma, because of their aggressive behavior and popularity with dog fighting.

Dogs and other animals can cause serious injuries like lacerations, disfigurement and even death, in some cases. If you are bitten by a dog, it is important to seek medical assistance immediately.
