One of the principle aspects in determining whether you have a feasible case for a dog bite attack claim is in the facts of the attack. If the dog bite attack was provoked in any way or the dog had not displayed any prior signs of aggression, you may not be able to bring a claim for any damages. It is important to consider your own actions leading to the dog bite attack. If your actions played any role in provoking the dog, you may not have a case for a dog bite claim. However, the percentage of how much at fault your actions may have been in leading to the dog bite attack, as well as the age of the victim (a child will not be held to the same reasonable standard of care as an adult), may impact your claim. In these situations, you may be entitled to still bring a claim for damages, although the amount may be slightly reduced.
