Animal & Dog Bites
If you are the victim of an animal bite or attack and need a lawyer...Kimmel Carter.
An animal owner can be liable if the animal bites or otherwise attacks another person. The injured party does not necessarily have to prove that the animal was vicious in nature. In order to recover for injuries resulting from an animal attack, the injured party must establish that the animal owner was in some way negligent. Negligent conduct can include:
- Failing to protect others from an animal known to be dangerous
- Failing to properly restrain the animal on a leash or otherwise
- Improperly containing an animal to prevent escape
- Harboring wild animals, such as lions, bears, and monkeys
Animal attacks can result in such injuries as bruises, scratches, infection, and in extreme cases, death. Accidents can also occur when a person is fleeing from an aggressive animal.
