Protect Your Legal Rights After a Dog Bite Injury
Dog owners must keep dangerous dogs under control. If they fail to do so, and the animal attacks someone, the dog's owner and any other individuals who are responsible for watching the dog may be liable for the medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering that result. In New York, a person injured by a dog bite must prove that the owner or persons in control of the dog knew or should have known that the dog might bite someone. This is often referred to as having "vicious propensities." This can be proven by showing that the dog had previously bitten someone or by other behaviors short of actually biting.
If you or someone you care about has been attacked by a dog, you need to take immediate action. Securing information as quickly as possible after the incident can often make the difference between winning a lawsuit and losing one. We can discuss your situation during a free case evaluation, during which we can explain your rights and options, and how we intend to handle your personal injury claim.
