Are there some common misconceptions about dog bite liability?

Yes, there are some misconceptions about who is liable for a dog bite. One of them is that people think that because they were bitten, the dog’s owner or their insurance company is automatically liable. That is not true. It is not true because the plaintiff usually has to prove that there was some negligence involved in the incident. This negligence typically involves the way that the dog owner or controller handled the dog or trained it.
