When An Owner Is Negligent
If you were bit, attacked or otherwise injured by a dog, cat, horse or other animal, it is likely that the owner is liable — even if it is an accident. Unless an animal was provoked, owners are responsible for controlling their pets.
Occasionally, someone other than the owner may be responsible for an attack. For example, if an individual was in a position to stop or prevent an attack but did nothing, he or she may be partially liable for the injuries the victim incurred.
When A Municipality Is Liable
It is a common misconception that no one can be held liable for a wild animal attack. In fact, a city, town or other municipality may be responsible for an attack. For example, if residents reported sightings of a dangerous or intrusive animal, but the city did nothing about it, it may be liable if the animal attacked a resident.
