Every person that owns or keeps a dog is liable for damages caused by the dog. The plaintiff is not required to prove that the dog was vicious or mischievous or that the owner or keeper knew of its propensities. The amount of liability is determined by comparative fault. Therefore, any fault on the part of the injured person may reduce the amount of damages awarded.
Utah does not have a Dangerous Dog Statute.
