Over 4 million people suffer dog bites each year. It is no surprise that dog bite–related litigation is commonplace, or that legislatures across the country are making significant revisions to their laws. This publication will bring you up to date on important legislative changes in Virginia dog law and show you the best way to handle cases of your own. It covers the elements for a cause of action for a dog bite (duty, violation, and cause) and damages that may be awarded for injuries.
This comprehensive, stand-alone publication is direct from a June 2011 seminar. It is available as a PDF download; however, the user has a license to print the materials if this format is more desirable. Click here for more information on electronic books.
