Who is Responsible for a Dog Attack in Maryland?
In the state of Maryland, in most cases, when a dog attacks another person, the dog’s owner is considered the liable party. That being said, if you were attacked by a dog who was on a leash or while you were on the owner’s property, you will have to prove that the dog owner was negligent, such as by proving that the dog has a history of violence. On the other hand, if you were attacked by a dog who was not under the control of its owner, such as in a public place, you shouldn’t have to prove a history of violence, as the owner is responsible for keeping his or her dog under control.
You should also understand that there are certain situations where you may not have a valid dog bite claim at all. For example, if the dog owner can prove that you were trespassing on his or her property, teasing the dog, or otherwise provoked the attack in some way, you may not have a claim.
