Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

Do I have a case if my child was attacked by a dog that escaped from my neighbor’s fenced yard?

Let’s say your daughter was playing in front of your house near the sidewalk. The neighbor’s dog, a pit bull, jumps the fence and comes over and attacks your child without provocation. In this type of dog bite incident the owner is usually liable. Pets should be contained and properly watched because of the risk of attack. Any dog is capable of a child dog bite attack. Most places will hold the owner liable if their pet runs away and hurts someone. There are many different things that can affect whether you have a good case or not.
