Nebraska Dog Bites Have Strict Liability
In Nebraska, dog owners are liable for any and all damages to anyone except a trespasser under a statutory strict liability.
Nebraska law sets forth dog bite liability. As dogs are personal property for all intents and purposes, the owner of a dog is liable for any and all damages that could accrue (1) to any person other than a trespasser by reason of having been bitten by such dog or dogs and (2) to any person, firm, or corporation by reason of such dog or dogs killing, wounding, injuring, worrying or chasing any person or persons or any sheep or other domestic animals belonging to such person. Owners become strictly liable for the actions of their dogs.

Nebraska’s strict liability statute on dog attacks and dog bites allows for recovery for damages without a showing of negligence on the part of the owner. If you have been bitten by a dog, make sure you file a dog bite report with the Nebraska Humane Society.
