Iowa Holds Dog Owners Responsible For Their Pets' Behavior

While some states have a "one bite free" rule when it comes to animal attacks, Iowa is a strict liability state. This means that Iowa law places full responsibility on the owner to control his or her dog and prevent it from injuring innocent people.

At the law firm of Hixson & Brown, P.C., our Iowa dog bite lawyers have experience representing both adults and children injured in animal attacks and other negligence-related incidents throughout the state.

We are personal injury lawyers who are committed to hard work and thorough case preparation. You can count on us to pursue maximum compensation for you or your loved one's medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

Bringing Lawsuits Against Friends Or Neighbors

Are you hesitant to pursue a personal injury lawsuit because the owner of the dog that attacked you is a friend, a neighbor or even a relative?

While it may seem like you are suing your friend, most dog bite claims are covered by homeowners insurance. This means that you are not actually demanding money from the dog's owner, but instead asking for fair compensation from his or her insurance company. Homeowners policies are intended to cover incidents just like these.
