More about Dog Bites
In Denver, if you were bitten or attacked by a dog, you can take action. Colorado laws will hold dog owners strictly accountable for injuries their dog inflict on others. Any dog can regardless of size, breed and/or temperament. The state of Colorado generally leaves dog containment up to
the individual municipality. To the degree to which the dog owners must control their dogs varies which Denver area municipality you call home. In most areas of Denver being in control means a person over the age 18 has control of an animal via leash and rope in public. Check with your municipality concerning its specific leash and containment laws.
Many states use either a negligence rule or a strict liability rule when approaching the matter of dog bite cases. Colorado uses a combination of the two types of laws, depending on the type of injury received and the circumstances under which the bite occurred. Colorado has instituted a dog bite statute as well as a negligence rule under premises liability to cover the majority of the
dog bite cases occurring in Denver. In cases where the bite does not cause serious bodily injury and the dog is not on the dangerous dog registry, premises liability takes precedence. In both cases, the dogs and owners may remain exempt from dog bite liability for several situations.
Colorado statutes hold that dogs causing serious bodily injury or death to a human or animal victim receive the dangerous dog designation. In addition, dogs displaying behavior that any reasonable person to believe the dog will inflict serious injury or death on an animal or human in the future, or dogs previously engaged in dog fighting may also receive the same designation. The Colorado Bureau of Animal Protection maintains a registry of dangerous dogs; owners of a dangerous dog that further causes serious bodily injury or death receive misdemeanor and felony charges, respectively.
