Every state has its own dog bite laws. West Virginia holds to the common law liability. Any dog owner or dog keeper who allows the animal to run at large will be held liable for any damages that are suffered. In cases where the dog is found to be running at large at the time when the victim suffers injury, negligence does not have to be proven.
If a dog is knowingly vicious, the owner is not allowed to keep the animal. After a dog is proven to be dangerous or to exhibit a habit of attacking people, the judge may be authorized to have it destroyed. The owner of the dog is required to secure the dog in a way that does not allow it to injure others. If this is not the case and subsequently, you have suffered injury, receive the help that our firm offers.
