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
- 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.
