Yes, under certain circumstances, you could be responsible for a dog bite or dog attack, rather than the owner of the dog. However, all dog bite incidents are unique, so you should never assume you are at fault for an injury without having a professional review the evidence in your case.
Again, these are simply a few possible situations in which you may not be able to sue a dog’s owner for negligence. Until all of the evidence in the case has been analyzed and considered, it is difficult to determine whether you may deserve compensation for your dog bite injury. If you or a loved one was involved in a dog bite situation and you need help examining the facts, Russell & Lazarus offers all dog bite injury victims a free case evaluation.
