The potential for liability exceeds $1 billion every year. As a dog owner, you should know your state law as well as city or county ordinances. “Strict liability” states hold the owner responsible for any damage the dog causes, regardless of its past history. Common-law states require teh dog bite lawsuit victim to prove that the dog owner knew the dog was dangerous but did not take precautions.
