Child Mauled By Dog Lawyers MN


Our lawyers handle cases every year where a dog bites or attacks a child.  Unfortunately, with some dog breeds, the injuries can be very serious. When a dog mauls a child, there can be lifelong consequences.  In most cases, the child will survive. However, extensive surgery may be required, and there is often permanent disfigurement. Whatever the situation, if the dog attack is serious, homeowners insurance may be available to pay compensation.

The law in Minnesota is very strict as to holding the dog owner liable for any injury caused by the dog.  A responsible dog owner wants to provide compensation for any person who was injured by their dog. This is especially true if a dog mauls or seriously injures a child.  There will be immediate medical bills, and possibly future medical bills to repair scars, etc.  That is the purpose of having homeowners insurance.

Here is the Minnesota law regarding dog bite:


If a dog, without provocation, attacks or injures any person who is acting peaceably in any place where the person may lawfully be, the owner of the dog is liable in damages to the person so attacked or injured to the full amount of the injury sustained. The term “owner” includes any person harboring or keeping a dog. However, the owner shall be primarily liable.
