When dangerous dogs are not properly secured or trained, dog attacks on humans can result, at times causing catastrophic injuries and even death. Dogs illegally trained for dog fights, as well as attack and guard dogs, present a potential danger to the public for which their owners must be held responsible. The state of Mississippi has what is called a “one bite law,” in which an owner is not liable for the first bite a dog ever inflicts on a human. However, if the owner knew that the dog had a history of having dangerous propensities, the owner would be liable even for a first time incident.

It takes competent, experienced legal counsel to prove the often subtle factors in owner liability for dog bites. If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog, we urge you to immediately contact an Ocean Springs personal injury lawyer to get the defense you need and the compensation you deserve.
