Liability for Dog Bites in Washington State
The Revised Code of Washington (RCW) § 16.08.040 is very succinct and clear when it comes to dog bite liability in the state. The owner of the dog is liable for any injuries that result from the bite. This liability exists whether the bite occurred in a public place or at the owner’s private residence. It does not matter whether the dog had a history of aggressive behavior or the owner was aware of any violent tendencies in the animal. The owner is liable regardless.
Given how straightforward the legal code in Washington is when it comes to dog bite liability, the Seattle dog bite lawyers at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can hold accountable the owner or anyone responsible for the care of the dog that bit you. Other potentially liable parties may include a dog spa or doggy daycare where the dog was staying, a veterinary office where the dog received treatment, or a dog sitter or dog walker who was supposed to be supervising the dog at the time of the bite.
