Protecting Your Rights After A Dog Bite Injury
In Virginia, there are specific laws and regulations that impose liability on owners when their dogs bite someone and cause injuries. These laws govern not only dogs on leashes but also unleashed, unattended dogs that attack people. If an owner fails to take reasonable care to prevent injuries caused by his or her dog, especially to those visiting his or her property, it is possible for the owner to be held liable for any injuries that the dog causes. Often, these injuries include:
- Bone fractures
- Nerve damage
- Crush injuries
- Severe scarring
The owner’s knowledge that his or her dog has a propensity for vicious behavior, or knowledge that the animal has bitten or attacked someone in the past, is a major factor in a dog bite case. Proving this can sometimes be difficult, though, so it is vital to have the assistance of an experienced dog bite injury attorney who uses focused investigation techniques.
