Dog Bite Case Responsibility
Who is the Responsible Party in a Dog Bite Case?
Check out the following educational legal video about dog bite case responsibility and who is to liable by Tiffany M. Kopacz, an experienced dog bite lawyer in Hamburg, NY.
When someone is bitten or attacked by a dog, it might appear that the dog’s owner is the responsible party, but this is not always the case. Perhaps the dog is owned by one person but is temporarily living at somebody else’s house, for example. The law states that the dog needs to be contained and adequately controlled, and that obligation extends to everyone to whom the owner entrusts the dog as well. If you are in a situation where there is a dog attack, you will need to inquire about the ownership of the dog, who was supposed to be watching it, and the address of where it was staying. Provide an attorney with this information so that he or she can determine who really could be responsible for not adequately securing the dog.
