Dog owners liable for bites

Last week the Maryland Senate approved a compromise bill on liability for dog bites.

POLL: Do you feel the General Assembly sufficiently addressed dog bite liability during the 2014 session?

The bill would hold dog owners liable for biting “innocent victims” unless they could prove they had no way to know their dogs were dangerous. It also effectively overturns a 2012 court decision that designated pit bulls as "inherently dangerous."

The House already passed the bill, so it will go to the governor to sign.
