BIT BY SOMEONE’S DOG AT CABIN – MN ATTORNEYS
A dog owner is responsible if their dog bites or injures someone. It doesn’t matter if the dog has not bitten anyone before. Even if it is the first time, the dog owner is responsible. The only defense to a dog attack or bite in Minnesota is if the victim was trespassing or provoked the dog. The law has to be strict, because there are so many dog bite or attack cases every year. Also, many of these cases involve children. It should be the dog owner who is responsible for medical bills and other compensation. Otherwise, it is the dog bite victim who has to pay the bills and suffer the consequences.
Our dog bite lawyers have handled these cases throughout Minnesota. The dog attack does not have to be on the property of the dog owner. Homeowners insurance will cover a dog attack or dog bite even if it occurs off the owners property. For example, our attorneys have pursued dog bite cases at a dog park, a pet store, and many other situations.
Recently, we have had several cases where the dog bite occurs at someone’s cabin or lake home. For some reason, dog owners tend to let their dogs be off leash more often at a cabin or lake home. The dog may run into the street by the cabin and attack someone passing by. Our lawyers have also handled many cases where the dog bite is to a visitor at the cabin. Fortunately, cabin insurance will also usually cover dog attacks.
