Dog Bite Injury
Litigating dog bite injury cases is far more complex than one may assume. In truth, the old adage “every dog is entitled to one free bite” is far from accurate. Instead, these claims involve a unique combination of city and county ordinances, state statutory law, state case law, and common law that can be applied to hold a defendant owner, landlord, or premises manager responsible for your client’s injuries.
The AAJ Exchange created our first Dog Bite Injury Litigation Packet in 2004 in order to provide a compendium of essential tools and strategies for plaintiff attorney members litigating cases on behalf of dog bite victims and their families. The newest version of the Litigation Packet contains sample complaints, discovery requests and interrogatories, motions for summary judgment, and trial transcripts from exemplary dog bite cases litigated by AAJ members, as well as relevant AAJ publications and a compilation of recent verdicts and settlements. In particular, this Litigation Packet:
- Provides an overview of available legal remedies to hold dog owners and third parties liable for your client’s dog bite damages, including comprehensive surveys of state dog bite laws and related statutes of limitation.
- Features case materials from a variety of cases litigated by AAJ plaintiff attorneys involving dog bite injuries.
- Includes sample pleadings, discovery requests and interrogatories, motions for summary judgment, and trial transcripts.
- Contains AAJ Education speaker papers and Trial articles to assist in developing and presenting your client’s dog bite case, including but not limited to common factors to consider in dog bite cases and maximizing your client’s economic and noneconomic damages.
