Our attorneys have extensive experience handling dog bite cases and, in handling your claim, will investigate the incident by evaluating:
- Your involvement in the event;
- The dog’s behavior and previous history of attacks;
- The location of the attack;

Liability is not strictly limited to the dog’s owner. If a landlord has knowledge that a tenant has a dog on the premises, they may also be liable for the dog’s actions. If they are aware of a dangerous dog on the premises, they owe other tenants a duty of care to protect them from harm.
