Dog Bites

Dog Bite Injuries

In Minnesota, many of the injuries caused by dogs subject the dog owner to strict liability, meaning there are often no defenses. The “dog bite” statute applies beyond dog attacks, even to inadvertent injuries. For example, we successfully litigated a case where a Plymouth woman, delivering a package, was startled by dogs jumping against a patio door.  Our client was startled, and fell off a deck step and fractured her hip (though there was no contact between she and the dogs).  We brought her case to trial and prevailed, after the insurer refused the claim. We definitely can help with any legal issues resulting from dog bites. We have handled numerous simple to complex dog attack cases. Call us today at 763-682-1082.
