    Colorado is a strict liability dog bite state

    Dog bite regulations often fall into one of two categories: strict liability or a one-bite rule. Colorado is a dog-bite strict liability state. According to Colorado law, a dog owner is strictly accountable for any physical harm and property damage a dog causes. The state’s strict liability statute is explained as follows:

    • If you were lawfully on public property or had permission to be on private property, and
    • did not knowingly provoke the dog, then
    • the dog’s owner or controller is liable for injuries and economic damages, regardless of whether the dog owner or controller knew of the dog’s vicious or dangerous propensity.

    Even if the owner was aware or should have known the dog could be aggressive, dog owners in Colorado are nevertheless responsible for any injuries and monetary losses brought on by their pet. On the other hand, in a one-bite state, there must be evidence that the owner was aware of the dog’s nasty tendencies and did nothing to stop a foreseen assault (e.g., if the dog had bitten someone previously).

    Colorado law allows dog bite injury victims to pursue other claims for injuries. Your Boulder personal injury lawyer at Front Range Injury Attorneys will carefully consider all options for recovery of your economic and non-economic damages.

    A dog attack can inflict serious injuries

    After a dog attack in Boulder, it can be crucial to take the pet owner to court in order to recover damages. Thousands of dollars in medical costs, surgeries, therapies, and physical therapy may be necessary to recover from your injuries. When the law holds the pet owner accountable, you shouldn’t be forced to cover these expenses out of pocket. Any of the following injuries may entitle you to compensation:

    • Puncture wounds
    • Lacerations and cuts
    • Broken bones
    • Face injuries
    • Eye injuries
    • Head and neck injuries
    • Hand and arm injuries
    • Nerve damage
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Diseases, such as rabies
    • Emotional and psychological injuries

    Due to their severe injuries, many victims of dog attacks need to visit the emergency hospital. The most typical dog attack injuries are those to the face, neck, hands, and arms. Significant scarring and disfigurement may occur in victims. Infections or diseases are additional risks for people who have been bitten by dogs. If your claim is approved, your injury and any associated costs may be covered.

    When to contact a dog attack attorney in Boulder

    When negotiating a payment with the dog owner’s insurance company, an attorney can defend you if you suffered serious or catastrophic injuries as a result of a dog attack in Boulder. Since pets are considered property in Colorado, the majority of dog bite injury claims are covered by the owner’s homeowners insurance policy. Negotiating a fair and complete payment from an insurance company can be challenging for an unrepresented victim.

    Insurance companies employ unique strategies to undervalue claims and conserve funds for their own financial gain. You can combat these strategies and demand a fair settlement for your damages and financial losses if you have a Boulder personal injury attorney on your side. Your dog attack attorney will bargain for a favorable resolution on your behalf. Your attorney can represent you in court in Boulder County if an insurer still refuses to handle your claim fairly.
