The first consideration that people need to be aware of when it comes to dog bites is that Colorado law requires owners to be in full control of their dog at all times, and that they are responsible for any injuries or damage they might cause. This is a legal concept known as "strict liability."
Furthermore, the law states, "A person or a personal representative of a person who suffers serious bodily injury or death from being bitten by a dog while lawfully on public or private property shall be entitled to bring a civil action to recover economic damages against the dog owner."
There are times when a dog's owner is exempt from liability when their dog bites someone. Those instances are as follows:
- The victim was trespassing
- The victim was provoking the dog
- The victim was acting physically aggressive toward the dog's owner
If you have suffered severe bodily injury, including a physical impairment and/or disfigurement, due to a dog bite, then you are entitled to be fully compensated. This includes, but is not limited to, all medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, prescription medicine, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
In order to ensure that you are properly and fully compensated, you need to consult with an experienced Colorado dog bite lawyer. The legal team at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., has the experience and resources to build a strong case on your behalf and get you the compensation you deserve.
