Dog bite claims are personal injury lawsuits or actions brought against dog owners to recover money or compensable damages for injuries, medical expenses and pain and suffering incurred from dog bites or attacks. Statutes governing dog bites or attacks from wild or abnormally dangerous animals vary between states. Some states impose strict liability (liability without fault); other states require proof that the dog is dangerous or vicious.
