When resolving opposing claims in dog bite cases, all sources of evidence need to be secured, and two in particular are the most reliable: the dog and the bite wounds.
There are three things about dogs that make them very important evidence:
1. Dogs are creatures of habit.
2. A dog’s temperament doesn’t change over time.
3. Dogs don't lie or change their behavior because they are involved in litigation.
Typically, a dog’s behavior can change due to old age, illness, injury, or if they have been trained or had their behavior modified after an incident, but their temperament does not change over time. That is why a professional forensic evaluation of a dog is valid even years after the incident.
There are 12 areas to consider as part of a bite incident since they may be very important in establishing a defense.
