How Strict Liability Works In Dog Bite Cases
Dog owners are strictly liable. This means the dog owner is responsible for controlling the dog and preventing any attacks. This is true even if the dog was not on the owner’s property but on your property, it is still the responsibility of the owner to protect others from his or her dog.
