When individuals are bit by dogs that are not their own, they often seek legal remedies. While they cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against the dog, they can file a lawsuit against the dog's owner.
Proving a personal injury lawsuit against a dog's owner, however, can be difficult. The requirements for proof often depend on the jurisdiction.
For instance, in some jurisdictions, the plaintiff must show that the owner knew that the dog was inclined to attack. In other jurisdictions, the plaintiff may only need to show that the owner did not take the necessary steps to keep the dog safe from other people.
