Washington law is very friendly to people who have been bitten by dogs. The law states that an owner can be held liable for any dog bite, regardless of the dog’s history. A dog without a history of bad behavior is subject to the same penalties as a dog that has acted aggressively in the past.
As a result, you only have to show that the owner acted negligently in keeping you safe. A dog bite lawyer from our firm will help you parse through the facts to construct a solid case.
