  • Enlisting the Help of a St. Louis Dog Bite Lawyer

    According to Missouri law, a dog owner is liable for injuries from an unprovoked dog bite as long as the dog bite victim is lawfully on public or private property, including on the dog owner’s property.

    There is one catch that St. Louis dog bite victims should be aware of, however, and that is the fact that if it is determined that the victim held some percentage of fault concerning the incident, damages owed will be reduced by that amount.

    So, for example, if the dog bite victim is found to be 30% liable for the dog bite incident and the compensation award for damages is $10,000, they will only be entitled to $7,000 for damages.

  • Responding to a St. Louis Dog Attack
