What happens if my dog was bitten by another dog? Liability will depend if the owner was negligent or in violation of a law.
Negligence is always difficult to prove, but there are always key factors to keep in mind when trying to prove negligence. For
example if the owner has a dog that tends to attack others or other dogs, it would be unreasonable to bring that dog to a dog park where the dog could bite another dog. That is when there is a case for negligence on the part of the dog that had bitten your dog.
Another situation to consider is if the owner was in violation of the law during the incident. If their dog was not on a leash and the law is clear that the animal should be on a leash then the owner is responsible. Perhaps you were in an area where the ordinance requires the owner of the other dog is responsible for any damages regardless of negligence.
