Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Levine Law Arrow Small

Are Some Dog Breeds More Likely to Attack?

Dog bites and other attacks can happen in a number of different ways. 

Certain breeds are more likely than others to attack. Pit bulls, for example, are responsible for more than one out of every five (22.5%) dog bites across the country every year, according to the American Animal Hospital Association. Mixed breeds (21.2%) and German shepherds (17.8%) are also near the top of the list.

Still, an experienced Denver dog bite lawyer will tell you that any dog can attack at any time. Although attacks can stem from a variety of factors, including teasing or otherwise provoking the animal, they often occur because the animal is not properly trained and cared for.

Denver Dog Bite Attorney Explains Your Legal Rights When Dogs Bite

Specific requirements vary by locality, but dog owners in Colorado are generally required to keep their animals under control at all times. That typically means keeping the dog on a leash and under the control of an adult while in public, as well as inside a structure or behind a fence while at home.

Dog owners are strictly liable for attacks that cause serious injuries, even if the dog had never bit anyone previously. Strict liability means that the owner is legally responsible regardless of whether he or she was actually negligent. Serious personal injuries include:

In all other dog bite cases, the owner must be found negligent in order to be considered responsible for a bite. The person injured has to show that the owner did not take reasonable care to constrain the animal or to warn visitors of the risk.
