Strict Liability States
Iowa and Nebraska are “strict liability states” when it comes to dog bites. This means that it doesn’t matter what kind of history the dog has or whether it has bitten someone before or not. If you were bitten by a dog, then the owner is liable for damages unless you were breaking the law or suspected of breaking the law when the attack occurred.
A dog owner may be relieved from their liability if you were breaking the law or provoking the attack. Actions from the victim that could limit owner’s liability include:
Trespassing on someone’s property
Interacting with the dog in a professional capacity as a trainer or vet
Provoking the animal into attacking through physical abuse or taunting
Committing a crime against the owner of the dog at the time of the attack
Choosing to interact with the dog even after being warned that it might bite
