Dog Bite Injuries: A Means Test

In the state of Indiana, dogs are presumed to be harmless regardless of their breed or size. In order to prove negligence on behalf of a dog’s owner, two conditions must be met:

  • Someone had control over the property where the dog bite/attack occurred and;
  • Someone in control had actual knowledge that the dog had a dangerous propensity

Proving ownership can be relatively easy. Proving actual knowledge can be a bit more difficult. That is why it is extremely important to have a lawyer who truly understands the law surrounding this issue to represent you.

Our main focus is protecting the rights of injured parties and helping them obtain financial compensation for the injuries and losses they have suffered. We understand the physical, emotional and financial hardships you may be facing — let us help you get the support you need.

Dog bite injuries can range from a puncture wound or laceration, to broken bones or nerve damage. If you or your child is suffering after a dog attack, please call our office at 888-255-7910 to set up an appointment to discuss your case. You may also contact us online.
