Did A Dog Bite You? Talk To Us.

Massachusetts has very strict laws that govern how dog bites and animal attacks are handled. According to the law, the pet owners are thoroughly responsible for any injuries and damage that their pets inflict and cause. In some situations, the dog owner's homeowner's insurance policy will cover instances where a dog bit a visitor. However, this is not always the case and the owner needs to be held responsible regardless of what his or her insurance company claims.

It is important for victims to know that they have legal rights after a dog bite even if the dog was not known to have been dangerous or vicious. Many people believe that there has to be knowledge, due to past behavior or attacks, that a dog could cause injuries in order for the dog bite case to be legally actionable. However, this is not true. The owner is responsible for anything that the dog or other animal does, even if it had never had any aggressive tendencies or previous behavior problems.

Dogs do not have to bite to cause injuries. If you were chased by a dog and fell, or scratched by a dog, or otherwise injured by a dog, you may have grounds to upon which to file a claim. Our firm can evaluate your case and determine the possibility of obtaining the recovery that you need and deserve.
