Understanding Minnesota’s Dog Bite Law
Minnesota’s dog bite law is very beneficial to dog bite victims. It specifically makes the owner or caretaker of the dog liable (meaning financially responsible) for almost any bite that occurs. Additionally, dogs are not given a first free bite in Minnesota, which means that the owner is liable to compensate the victim even if this was the first time their dog bit someone.
Minnesota’s dog bite law – Minnesota Statutes § 347.22 – states that dog owners are liable for the full amount of damages incurred by injured victims if:
- A dog attacks or injures a person without being provoked, and
- The person was acting peaceably in a place where they were lawfully permitted.
The dog owner’s homeowners or renters insurance will usually cover the losses regardless of whether the bite happened in a home, condo/apartment, yard, park, sidewalk, or on the street. Even if the dog owner is a friend or relative of the victim, homeowners or renters insurance will usually bear the cost for compensating the victim. Remember, the law protects victims’ rights.
