Your Legal Options For Compensation After A Dog Bite Injury In New York

Homeowner’s Insurance Claims: Most dog bite incidents fall under homeowner’s insurance policies when they occur on the property of the dog’s owner. These insurance policies often cover damages such as medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our dog bite attorneys can help you file a claim and negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you receive fair compensation.

Personal Injury Lawsuits: If insurance claims do not fully cover your damages, filing a personal injury lawsuit against the dog owner might be the next step. In New York, dog owners can be held liable if they knew or should have known their dog had vicious propensities. Evidence such as previous aggression can play a crucial role in these cases. Our attorneys are adept at gathering the necessary proof and presenting a strong case on your behalf.

Landlord Liability: In some cases, if the dog bite occurred on a property owned by someone other than the dog’s owner, the landlord could be held responsible. This is particularly relevant if the landlord knew of the dog’s presence and potential danger but failed to take appropriate actions to ensure safety.
