The pet owner is responsible for dog bite injuries.
There is no question about it: Dog bites are subject to strict liability. That means the owner is responsible for controlling the dog and for whatever injuries the dog causes. When a child or adult is attacked by a dog, the victim is not to blame.
Dog bite injuries are serious. When a pit bull, Rottweiler or any other breed attacks someone, the injuries can include gouging, infection, nerve damage and scarring. The victims often tell us the worst injuries are the psychological scars that endure long after the animal attack.
Do not let anyone minimize the damages. The insurance company or the dog's owner may tell you the injuries are not serious. Their goal is a quick, low-cost settlement. Do not feel pressured to settle. Make sure you know the full extent of damages and understand how much your medical and psychological treatment will cost. Scarring and nerve damage can require multiple surgeries over time. Psychological therapy takes time and patience.
