Dog Bite

16If a dog bites a person, without provocation while the person is on public property, or lawfully on private property, including the property of the owner of the dog, the owner of the dog shall be liable for any damages suffered by the person bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owner’s knowledge of such viciousness.

Also, whoever knowingly keeps an animal accustomed to attacking and injuring persons may be liable to any person attacked and injured. Generally, this type of dog bite case requires proof that the owner or keeperof the animal knew of its vicious nature as a prerequisite to liability.
