Topeka Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Put 130+ Years of Experience in Your Corner

Despite being man's best friend, many dogs are owned by irresponsible people who do not properly restrain their animals or do not have a concern for the safety of others. As a result, many dogs run wild or are badly trained, leading to serious dog bite attacks.

Our firm was founded in 1985 and our legal team has 130+ years of collective experience! Please contact our firm at (785) 200-9465 to speak with a caring lawyer from our team about your case.

Proving Negligence in Dog Bite Cases in Kansas

Kansas follows a "one bite" rule which means a dog owner is not held liable for injuries their dog inflicts unless they knew or should have known that their dog was potentially dangerous, such as if they have bitten another in the past or if they have a history of aggressive behavior. An injury victim must prove negligence on behalf of the owner, or that the owner did not take care to prevent the injury.

In order to prove negligence, our dog bite injury attorneys must prove the following:

  • That the dog owner failed to restrain the dog
  • That the dog owner knew the dog had aggressive tendencies
  • That you suffered serious injuries

At Ralston, Pope & Diehl, our goal is to thoroughly investigate your case and build a legal strategy which aims to recover the maximum compensation on your behalf.
