Have you been bitten by a dog in Rhode Island? You may be interested to learn that Rhode Island has some of the most plaintiff-friendly dog bite laws in the country. Rhode Island uses the “one bite rule” when a dog attacks someone in the dog’s enclosure. However, outside of the dog’s enclosure (ie: in the street, in a park, etc.) our state imposes strict liability. That is, the owner is liable for the damage caused by the dog regardless of fault.
