Dog Bite Liability in Alabama

There are certain situations where a victim of a dog attack can pursue financial compensation from the owner of the dog, regardless of whether negligence or wrongdoing was involved. This is referred to as strict liability.

Strict liability applies to Alabama dog bite cases if the following criteria are met:

  • The dog bit or injured the victim without provocation; and
  • The victim was lawfully on the dog owner’s property; or
  • The victim was pursued by the dog off the owner’s property.

When dog attacks occur off the owner’s property, there are still ways to pursue compensation. Proving negligence can establish the legal responsibility of the dog owner to pay for the victim’s medical bills and other expenses. For example, if the owner of the dog knew that the animal had acted aggressively in the past or had bitten someone, this may be sufficient to prove liability. Another example may be a violation of a leash law or animal control law.

By investigating your unique case and talking to you about your goals and needs, your Huntsville personal injury lawyer at Hill & Jordan can take the necessary steps to pursue fair compensation.
