Rental property and dog attacks

We have gone over some of the consequences that dog bite victims may endure after they are attacked, from scars and physical pain to medical costs. If you were attacked by a dog, you may have many questions and could be struggling to work through a variety of issues. For example, you may be wondering how the attack was allowed to occur and who shares responsibility in the incident. In some instances, unique details may need to be considered, especially for those who are thinking about taking legal action due to dog bite injuries. For example, a landlord may be held accountable if his or her tenant owned a dog which attacked someone.

There are various issues you may need to look over if you are in this position and think that a landlord's carelessness contributed to the attack. For example, maybe a tenant complained to his or her landlord about a hole in the fence or some other repair or issue that had to be addressed with regard to the rental property and the landlord failed to take action. Or, perhaps a landlord knew that a violent dog was posing a threat to other people and failed to do anything about the situation.

Either way, these dog attacks can be very tragic and often leave victims with various challenges. Those responsible for the attack should not be able to get away scot-free. Head over to our personal injury section to read over more information related to violent dog attacks.
