Minneapolis Animal Injury Lawyers Near Me
The personal injury attorneys at Hall Law have significant experience handling claims involving injuries caused by animals. As a result, we understand the issues in successfully pursuing these types of claims on behalf of our clients.
Minnesota law recognizes a number of different types of claims based on injuries caused by animals. For example, there is a statute making it unlawful for the owner of an animal to allow the animal to “run at large”. Thus, a motorist who is injured when his vehicle strikes an animal has a potential claim against the animal owner for negligently permitting the animal to roam at large. There is another statute that imposes absolute liability on dog owners when the dog without provocation attacks or injures any person who is acting peaceably where the person may lawfully be. The owner of the dog is liable in damages to the person attacked to the full amount of the injury sustained.
Our firm has handled a number of cases involving injuries caused by animals. The firm has represented clients ranging from children who have sustained significant scarring as a result of a dog attack to a man who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury when his vehicle ran into a horse roaming at large on a county highway.
