Dog Bite Attorney in NYC
The vast majority of the dogs we encounter are wonderful and affectionate. We call them “man’s best friend” for good reason. However, every once in a while there is a dog whose owner has not accepted that his or her pet has vicious tendencies or an owner who has trained the dog to be aggressive towards strangers. Dog bite injuries can be quite severe. A dog has the ability to rip flesh, damage tendons and nerves, and leave lasting injuries that can impact a victim for years. You could face overwhelming financial impacts through mounting medical bills. Do not allow the neglect of another person to negatively impact your future. If you have been injured by a dog and need effective representation, contact the Law Offices of Laurence C. Tarowsky today to schedule a free consultation. Our team will assess your case, guide you through your legal options, and passionately represent your interests in and out of the courtroom.
If You Are Injured by a Dog
If you are seriously injured by a dog, get medical treatment. When you seek medical attention, the professionals will tend to your needs, document the injury and other important factors that can help your case, including the place and time of the injury. You should collect information about the owner and the dog. You should find out what kind of dog bite you and if the animal is current on its shots. If anyone witnessed the injury, ask for their contact information to corroborate your story.
According to New York State law, you need to prove that your injuries are serious. You also need to establish that the dog has violent tendencies and the owner knew about it. Though it may seem simple, establishing violent tendencies takes some investigation. Through interviews with neighbors, searches into previous records of injury claims and other legal means, we can help you form your personal injury case. If we can establish a valid personal injury claim, we will effectively represent your interests to recover damages that will make you whole again.
Each year, millions of people are bitten by animals, especially dogs. While some dog bites are minor, many victims suffer painful injuries and emotional scars. While no amount of money can heal your wounds, if you’ve been bitten by a dog or other animal, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Any income you lost due to time you had to take off from work because of your injuries
- Your physical and emotional pain and suffering
- The cost of medical treatment
