How Do Most Dog Bites Happen?
Dog bites can happen at the least expected times and places, making them very dangerous for victims. In addition to physical damage, a dog bite can also leave people feeling frightened and traumatized long after the actual incident. Our lawyers understand that you need compensation for what you have been through, which is why we will make sure you get all of your losses covered for maximum fairness. At Mark E. Seitelman Law Offices, P.C., we know how important it is to take a stand against insurance companies who do not play fair with people who have been injured by dogs or other animals. Our law firm has found that many dog bite cases and dog attacks occur because the dog’s owner did not take the proper steps to secure their dog. There is a dog bite law in New York called the one-bite rule that applies in many dog bite cases. The owner is not liable for their dog’s first attack, but they will be held responsible if the animal goes on to attack again. If a dog owner knew their dog was dangerous and still neglected to take precautions to avoid further harm, we can hold them accountable for the negligence.
What Losses Can I Claim in My Dog Bite Claim?
Dog bite injuries can leave dog bite injury victims with high medical bills, expensive surgeries, lost wages due to time off work, pain and suffering arising out of emotional trauma, as well as other losses, depending on what kind of harm occurred after being bitten by a dog. These are all damages that can be claimed. Dog bite incidents involving children can be even more dangerous, and sometimes deadly. If you or your child were bitten by a dog, receive immediate medical attention and then contact our injury law firm in New York to get the help you need.
