One dog bite injury can turn an adult or a child who loves dogs into someone who has a life-long fear of dogs. In addition to the emotional injury, a dog bite can leave physical scars that may require surgical intervention to minimize.
In Alaska, a dog owner may be liable for the actions of their animal. While Alaska has no specific statutes regarding dog bites, owners who are aware their dog has a propensity to bite may be held liable for the injury their dog causes. Dog owners may face lawsuits for the injury including claims for negligence, nuisance, or willful misconduct.
