Establishing Owner Liability for Dog Bite Injuries

Kansas follows the “one bite” rule, which means that a dog owner can only be considered legally responsible for a bite on his own premises if the owner knew the dog was dangerous and likely to attack people (such as when the dog has bitten before). Proving that a dog had the tendency to be violent and attack requires in-depth investigation of the dog’s history to determine if the dog’s owner had knowledge that there was a history of viciousness.

JHC’s Overland Park dog bite lawyers know how to manage an investigation to support your claim. Many jurisdictions have laws that require all dog bites to be reported, which means that there may be records showing that the dog attacked other victims in the past. This can be crucial evidence to support a dog bite claim. If it is possible to prove that the dog acted in a threatening manner to others or used aggressive behavior such as charging at people or snapping at people without being provoked, then it will be much easier to support liability.
