Dog Bite and Dog Attack Lawyer
Experienced Dog Bite Injury Attorney in Mason City, Des Moines, and Cedar Rapids
Although the vast majority of dogs tend to be loving and friendly animals, it’s important to remember that dogs are capable of inflicting serious bodily injury when they attack a person. A dog bite or attack can result in devastating injuries to the victim, including permanent scarring, disfigurement, broken bones, internal injuries, infections, and psychological trauma. If you or your child has been bitten or attacked by a dog, you should know that you have rights under the law that entitle you to compensation. An experienced dog bite attorney can advise you of these rights and help file a personal injury claim.
Iowa Dog Bite Law
Under Iowa law, the owner of a dog will be held strictly liable for any injuries their dog inflicts on a person. It doesn’t matter if the dog doesn’t have a history of aggressive behavior, or if the owner never witnessed the dog acting out aggressively before. If a dog bites or attacks a person, the owner will be held responsible for the accident and liable for paying damages to the victim.
