There are conditions to the Minnesota dog bite law. When the dog bites someone, the person has to be someplace where he has a right to be. There must be direct physical contact by the dog. There is no need to show that the dog was vicious. The dog owner has to pay for damage caused by accidental bumping.
The dog owner does not have to pay if the person bitten provoked the dog. Just what is considered provocation is subject to debate.
