This course is designed both for attorneys who want to start handling dog bite cases and for attorneys who already handle them and want to improve their understanding of these cases. How to handle these cases is largely determined by the individual State laws that apply. Some states have strict liability while others go by the One Bite Rule and/or some form of negligence. Cases under the One Bite Rule and negligence can be tricky. This course is aimed at providing insight on how to analyze the legal issues you will face and investigate your claim to determine whether it is likely to be a good case or whether you should pass. It will further take you through the litigation strategies that can help you prove negligence, strict liability and gross negligence so as to get better settlements and awards.
