When a dog bite occurs, thoughts of liability usually come up immediately. The person bitten wants compensation for his or her injuries. The dog owner begins to worry about paying for such damages, and the landlord of the property may even be concerned about his or her liability, if any. A dog bite is an unfortunate situation, but when one occurs, the law usually steps in to handle liability issues.
