Minnesota's Dog Bite Laws
In Minnesota, there is no such thing as "one free bite." It does not matter if the dog that bit you has never shown aggression before. If you are attacked by another person's dog while in a public place or legally on another's property, the dog owner is strictly liable for your injuries. This includes your:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Many people are uncomfortable with the idea of suing someone they know. Remember, a dog bite claim is typically a premises liability claim against an insurance company. The insurance company is liable for your damages, not the individual dog owner, to the extent there is insurance coverage.
