Idaho's "Vicious Dog" Statute
While there is no dog bite statute in Idaho, there is a vicious dog statute. A dog is considered vicious if it will bite, attack or injure someone who is not trespassing. Owners are required to keep vicious dogs fenced in or enclosed. If the dog is not fenced in, it must be kept on a chain. Cities like Boise, Nampa, McCall, Ketchum, Hailey, Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Sandpoint often have their own animal laws that can help you as well.
As Boise dog bite attorneys, we know that dogs do not need to be identified as "vicious" to cause injuries. Whether a dog is considered vicious or not, dog owners need to control their pets. Dog bites can result in serious medical and psychological damages. Our law firm seeks fair compensation for damages that include:
- Tissue damage
- Nerve damage
Protecting Children Who Have Been Attacked by Dogs
Dog bites can be especially dangerous and damaging to children. If your child sustained a dog bite or other animal bite, he or she may require future surgery and rehabilitation. Holzer Edwards, Chartered, is dedicated to securing the fair compensation your child requires.
