Dog bites can cause significant physical and emotional harm for victims of all ages. They often require an extensive amount of medical care, such as multiple surgeries, as well as physical therapy. In addition, they may need psychological counseling to handle the traumatic experience of the attack.
If you suffered a serious injury after being attacked by another person’s dog in Missouri, our Kansas City personal injury lawyers are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve. With millions of dollars recovered successfully on behalf of our clients, our legal team is confident that we can do the same for you.
Whether or not their dogs ever bit someone in the past, Missouri has a strict liability on dog owners for dog bites. According to Missouri Revised Statutes section 273.036, owners are liable for injuries caused by their dog if the injury was the result of a bite or attack, the injured person was on public property or was lawfully on private property, and the injured person did not provoke the dog to bite or attack.
If a victim does not require immediate medical attention, it is important to document where the dog attack transpired. As long as you are not trespassing or in the process of committing a crime on someone’s private property, you are eligible to pursue compensation.
