Injuries Caused by Dog Bites
A dog attack can cause serious injuries, including severe lacerations, nerve damage, scars and physical deformity. Necessary medical care in the aftermath of a dog attack may include doctor visits, hospitalization, surgery and reconstructive cosmetic procedures. People who have been severely traumatized by a dog attack may also seek counseling services.

New York is not a strict liability state for dog bite attacks. For a plaintiff to recover damages for a dog bite attack, they must prove that the dog's owner was negligent. A plaintiff may prove negligence by showing that the dog previously attacked another person or the owner knew of the dog's dangerous propensities.
The best way to know if you have a basis for recovery is to contact a personal injury attorney. Our personal injury lawyers are particularly adept at building a strong case on behalf of clients to prove negligence and obtain compensation.
