Dangerous Dog Laws in Colorado

The state of Colorado has laws for dog owners that require additional attention and prevention measures be taken if their dog has been deemed dangerous. Dangerous dogs are those caught taking especially aggressive actions against other people or animals. Biting or seriously threatening another person may be grounds for labeling a dog as dangerous. After this point, owners have a heightened legal responsibility to keep their dogs restrained in public in an effort to prevent any further altercations.

If you’ve been attacked or bitten by a dangerous dog, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation from the dog’s owner. For more information about how we may be able to help you file a personal injury claim, contact a Denver injury lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today at (303) 423-1770.

Responsibilities for Dangerous Dog Owners

When a person is injured by a dog that has previously been labeled dangerous, that person may have a stronger chance of receiving compensation for their injuries due to the heightened expectations of the dog’s owner. These expectations include the following:

  • Posting warnings outside property about the dog’s behavior
  • Keeping the dog within a state-approved enclosure
  • Have the dog marked by collar, chip, or tattoo
  • Finding insurance for possible injury costs linked to the dog’s behavior

If a dog owner fails to meet these expectations, their negligence may cost someone else their health and well-being in a dog attack. As a result, that dog owner may be liable for the expenses related to that attack.
