Vicious Animal Attacks

Dog Bites

There are four bits of criteria that need to be satisfied for your animal lawsuit to go into effect.

  1. The injured person was attacked or injured by the animal.
  2. The person being sued is the owner, keeper, or harborer of the animal.
  3. The victim didn't provoke the animal to bite, attack, or charge at them.
  4. The victim was acting peaceably somewhere he or she had the right to be.


The law doesn't require that the animal bite someone, or even make physical contact. For example, if a dog runs at and frightens someone, causing him or her to injure themselves, the statute can be applied.

The dog or another animal must, however, take some action that’s directed at the injured person. The keyword here is directed at.

If you have been injured and you feel that an aggressive animal may have been the cause. It is OK to ask for legal advice. It is OK to get real answers from a well-respected law firm.
