Dog Bite Statute of Limitations

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries because of a dog bite, it is vital to contact an attorney as quickly as possible. Dog bite causes fall under the statute of limitations for a personal injury case. This means that the injured person only has one year from the date of the incident to bring the case to a court in Louisiana. If the case is not brought to court within a year, it will likely be dismissed.

Louisiana Dog Bite Regulations

Louisiana’s dog bite statute in section 2321 of the Louisiana Civil Code states that the owner of a dog bite can be held liable for the victim’s injuries if:

  • The owner knew that the animal’s behavior would cause damage
  • The damage could have been prevented using reasonable care
  • The owner failed to take reasonable care to prevent the damage
  • The injured person did not provoke the animal to attack
