Liability

Injuries from a dog bite can have long-lasting effects. In addition to potential scarring and disfigurement, a dog bite can also bring substantial psychological trauma which could require counseling. This scary situation could happen to anyone but it’s important to remember that children and senior citizens are often most susceptible.

At Walsh & Gaertner we work our tails off to hold the dog owners accountable for their pet’s behavior. We know that injuries suffered from a dog bite can have devastating consequences. We’ll do an in-depth investigation and build an iron clad case against the dog’s owner.

Strict Liability

Dog bite cases in Minnesota are examined through a lens of strict liability. This holds dog owners responsible for any injuries sustained by bites and other attacks, as long as the dog was unprovoked and the victim was within his/her legal rights to be on the premises.
