No Agreement in Pit Bull Legislation between the Maryland House and Senate

 In Baltimore Renters Insurance, Dog Bite Insurance

The Baltimore Sun reported today (March 9, 2013) that a compromise to undo the court ruling that found pit bulls to be inherently dangerous unraveled yesterday in Annapolis. Both the House and Senate had versions of a bill that would treat Pit Bulls by a different standard that applied to other dogs.

Since no bill was passed and no compromise was reached, the law of the land is still “strict liability” where there is an almost automatic legal presumption that the owner is responsible. The best way to protect yourself as the owner of a Pit Bull, is to buy Dog Bite insurance, as the breed is specifically excluded from coverage from most homeowner’s policies.
