Minnesota has a strict liability dog “bite” statute that applies to the owners and keepers of dogs who injure people. The injuries, often to young children, can often bring out strong emotions and claims of disfigurement and life-long emotional injury. The defense attorney’s job is to determine whether statute really applies, if there is provocation. It takes a lawyer with experience who understands the local jury pools to understand the value of a scar on a 6 year-old’s chin. We have been handling these cases for years and understand that different people perceive different value for these injuries. We typically seek multiple opinions from our partners before offering an opinion. If you are looking for a lawyer that knows the pitfalls of these claims, and how to avoid them, contact us.
