RECOVERY FOR INJURY IN DOG RESCUE

In Minnesota, it is the law that a person who is injured while coming to the rescue of the victim of injury caused by another person’s negligence may collect damages against the negligent person for those injuries. But what if a person is injured while coming to the rescue of a dog that is being attacked by another dog?

To make the question even more complex, what if the rescuer is not injured by the vicious dog? What if the injury happens when the rescuer suffers an ankle injury while jumping off a storage shed, landing wrong and fracturing the ankle?

These were the facts of a case which was successfully handled by Douglas E. Schmidt of the Schmidt Law Firm. The case was tried to a jury in Dakota County District Court in Hastings, Minnesota and resulted in a success recovery for Schmidt’s client.

Schmidt successfully convinced the judge that the Minnesota rescue law which makes the negligent person liable for injuries also applied to dog attacks. The judge, interpreting Minnesota law, ruled that the owner of the vicious dog that was attacking the rescuers dog was liable for the injuries to the victim dog which were sustained while coming to the rescuer.
