Can I Sue A Dog Owner for Negligence?
Yes, you can sue the dog owner for negligence if the dog owner maintained ineffective control of the dog in a situation where it was foreseeable that injury could occur. If the dog owner fails to exercise ordinary care to control or restrain the animal to prevent foreseeable harm, the dog owner breached his or her duty to the injured person. In those situations, a dog attack victim may make a negligence claim
Negligence cases entail a detailed investigation into how the dog attack occurred and why it occurred. It is important a local animal control agency
is informed of the attack as well as the police department. That way, witness statements can be taken and proper citations given to the dog owner. This evidence can be used later by the lawyer to help prove your case.
