Minnesota Dog Bite Claims
If you or a loved one has recently been injured due to a dog bite, you may have the right to recover damages and compensation from the insurance company of the dog’s owner.
Minnesota Statute § 347.22 provides that, “If a dog, without provocation, attacks or injures any person who is acting peaceably in any place where the person may lawfully be, the owner of the dog is liable in damages to the person so attacked or injured to the full amount of the injury sustained.” That means that in Minnesota, as long as there is no “provocation,” and a person is not trespassing, any and all damages sustained as a result of an attack by a dog are the legal responsibility of the owner of that dog. These damages may include medical bills, as well as compensation for disfigurement, pain, suffering, and emotional distress experienced as a result of the attack.
