Dog Parks and Dog Bite Liability

Dog parks are places where dogs can run around either on or off of a leash. As with any recreational area, there are some inherent risks associated with visiting dog parks. Because most dog parks are leash-optional, many large and potentially dangerous dogs can move around on their own accord. This can lead to dangerous situations involving unleashed dogs biting or attacking other people and other dogs.

Because dogs are not always required to be on leashes in dog parks, a dog owner may not be found liable or negligent for failing to properly restrain his or her dog. However, if you or a loved one was injured by a dog at a dog park, it is still important to talk to a lawyer to determine you legal rights and options. Call the Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE for a free consultation.

Owner Liability in Dog Park Attacks

Even though it is often more difficult to prove liability in a dog bite accident that occurred in a dog park, it is not impossible. In some cases, the dogs that attack other people or dogs at a dog park are notoriously unsafe canines. Some unreasonable dogs to unleash at a dog park include pit bulls and Rottweilers.

Additionally, if the owner of the dog knew the canine had the potential to attack someone else, he or she can still be held liable for their dog attacking, even if the dog park allows pets to be off the leash. For instance, dogs with a history of biting should not be off the leash even where unleashing is acceptable.
