In Massachusetts a dog owner is liable if their dog causes personal injury and the injured person did not trespass, cause another negligent act or provoke the dog. Massachusetts law is a strict liability state. That means that someone who is injured by a dog does not need to show that the dog owner was at fault. The dog owner would be held liable for injuries even if they had no prior knowledge that the dog would bite or attack. The injury does not need to arise from a bite. It can occur simply from an attack, such as being knocked down.
