A dog bite can be the result of any number of circumstances, and often compensation is due to the dog bit victim. The owner may have known their dog was vicious and had done little or nothing to prevent someone from suffering a bite. Even if a dog has never bitten anyone before, an owner must be aware of the possibility of even a docile dog biting someone -- and being the owner of the dog means they have legal responsibility for any injuries caused by the animal. The dog may have been off their lease in violation of local leash laws. The dog may have escaped its confines and ended up roaming public areas, resulting in the animal biting an innocent victim. The owner or keeper of a dog is strictly liable for his or her dog, even if it is the first time the dog has injured someone.
