Understanding New York’s Dog Bite Laws

New York dog bite statutes state that the owner of a dog who attacks another person is liable for the medical costs of any injuries the dog causes. In addition to the physical pain, instances of dog bites and attacks can also often result in emotional damages and post-traumatic stress. Even if the owner used a reasonable amount of effort to control the dog, he or she is still liable for your injuries.

Injuries caused by dog bites and attacks commonly include:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Infection
  • Facial scarring
  • Nerve damage

Some injuries for dog bites require extensive medical care and cosmetic surgery for those that are severely scarred. Oftentimes insurance companies want to dictate the course of your settlement, but if you retain the legal services of Scarzafava & Basdekis, our committed Oneonta dog bite lawyers will work tirelessly to advocate for more than just monetary compensation – we’ll fight to protect your rights as a victim.
