Utah dog laws are clear about dog owners’ responsibilities to protect people from being attacked, bitten, or harmed by their dogs. However, actually applying the law and proving your case to get you the financial compensation you deserve is complicated, and rarely as clear as it would seem at first glance.
If you or someone you love has been seriously injured by a dog attack anywhere in Utah, you need to know that even if the owner of the dog was not charged or found guilty of any criminal charges, you can still sue for justice through financial recovery in civil court.
Responsibility of the owners.
In Utah, unlike many other states, owners of dogs do not get one “free bite”. They are responsible for their dog from the first time it bites someone.
