Get the compensation that you deserve. From lost wages, hospital bills, and even pain and suffering, you can get money for having to go through this difficult time.

In Minnesota there is a special law that deals with dog bite cases. You do not have to prove that the dog owner was negligent or that the dog has bitten in the past. In most cases, the owner of the dog is automatically liable for any injuries caused by the dog. Simmonds & Wright has successfully handled these types of cases for more than 30 years.

Minn. Statutes Annotated, Section 347.22: Damages, owner liable.

For Your Information, the Minnesota Dog Bite Statue is:

“If a dog, without provocation, attacks or injures any person who is acting peaceably in any place where the person may lawfully be, the owner of the dog is liable in damages to the person so attacked or injured to the full amount of the injury sustained.  The term “owner” includes any person harboring or keeping a dog but the owner shall be primarily liable.
