Negligent Dog Owners
Dog bites can cause serious injury, resulting in severe pain, damaged nerves, and infections such as rabies. New York dog owners are responsible for the behavior of their dogs and need to have them properly licensed. You can hold the dog owner responsible for any damages related to your injury.
Building a solid case against the owner of the canine that attacked you can be complex. Uncovering the dog’s history is a key component in determining liability. It can help your claim if the animal has a vicious disposition and has attacked others in the past.
Depending on the circumstances and where the attack took place, you may have a case against not only the dog’s owner, but also against the owner of the property where the attack took place. For example, if the dog mauled you at a veterinary clinic, you might also have a case against the clinic.
