Dog Bite Laws

Rhode Island follows a strict liability rule when it comes to dog bites, meaning that an owner can be held responsible for injuries their dog inflicts even if they didn’t know their dog would act aggressively. However, in Rhode Island, this rule can depend on the location of the incident and other circumstances

You may be entitled to compensation from the dog’s owner if:

  • The attack occurred anywhere outside of the dog’s enclosure; or
  • The attack occurred in the dog’s enclosure but the owner knew of the dog’s vicious propensities.

You may be entitled to double compensation if the dog injured someone in the past. You may also be entitled to compensation even if you were not physically bitten, but your injuries stemmed from a dog’s behavior, such as a dog jumping on you and causing you to fall. With the help of a Warwick dog bite lawyer, you may be able to recover money that can help you rebuild and move on with your life.
