Animal Bites - E-Newsletter January 19, 2010


Animal Bites

An owner of a pet may be liable for injuries that are caused when the animal bites another. This area of law commonly concerns dog bites, but in actuality many other types of domesticated animals, such as ferrets and cats, can bite humans, causing injury and potential liability for their masters. This liability will vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Many states have “dog bite” statutes, and many municipalities have their own particular statutes, as well.
