DOG ATTACK AT DOG BARK – MN DOG BITE LAWYERS
Our dog bite lawyers have represented many people bitten by a dog at a dog park. People bring their dogs to the dog park for fun and so their dog can get exercise and socialize with other dogs. However, dogs are instinctive animals and sometimes they will unexpectedly fight or lash out at each other. Often a dog owner at an off leash dog park will try to break up the fight to save their own dog and be injured in the process, either by being bitten by one of the dogs or falling.
In that situation, even at a dog park, the dog owner is still responsible for any injury or bite caused by his dog. It may be a dog attack of a person or a dog attack of another dog. The dog owner is responsible either way. Minnesota law does not allow for comparative fault or the argument that a person takes a risk being at the off leash dog park. Even if the dog did not intentionally injury the person, the dog owner is responsible for the injury.
Fortunately, most homeowners insurance will cover the dog owner’s liability for a dog bite or dog attack at a dog park. This will pay for medical bills and compensation for scars, etc. even if the dog bite did not occur at the dog owner’s home. Our lawyers have successfully represented hundreds of people in homeowners claims for a dog bite or dog attack.
