Dog Bites; Dog Attacks; Dog Maulings. Under Washington
State’s Dog Bite Statute, the owner of a dog that
bites a person who is in a public place or lawfully
on private property is strictly liable for the
damages caused by the bite. This liability can
extend to a person who harbors or keeps the dog.
There are limited exceptions to the liability
imposed by this statute. The Law Office of Elizabeth
Elliott represents both individuals who have been
bitten and owners of dogs that have allegedly bitten
a person. If you are in need of representation,
