When is an owner liable for his dog biting another person in Virginia?
Virginia does not have a specific statute that controls personal injury liability for dog bites. Instead the practice is for owners of dogs and other animals to be held liable only if the claimant can show that the owner should have known that their animal was dangerous. This is the “one bite” rule that is often used to deal with these cases.
