NYC Dog Bite Lawyers

New York has what is known as a "one bite rule" for dog bite injuries. In order to hold a dog owner responsible for your injuries, you must be able to show that the dog had vicious propensities such as a previous bite, attack or other action that should have put the owner on notice of the dog's dangerous behavior.

Dog Attack Injuries — Attorneys in Queens

A dog bite can lead to serious and devastating injuries, especially if the victim is a small child. This could include:

  • Facial scarring and disfigurement
  • Rabies and other diseases transmitted from the attacking dog
  • Deep wounds and lacerations on limbs and other body parts
  • Infections from wounds and bites

Whatever your injury, we will work to secure the compensation you need for medical expenses and for your pain and suffering.

Holding Landlords Accountable for Dangerous Dogs

Some breeds of dogs — such as pit bulls and Rottweilers — are more dangerous than others. For this reason, many landlords forbid these breeds in their lease agreements. In these cases, the landlord may have a duty, built into the lease, to keep those types of dogs from the premises. If your landlord knew of a dangerous breed of dog in the building, you may be able to collect damages from your landlord if you are injured by that dog.

Other Animal Attacks

In addition to dogs, other animals and pets can cause injuries. Owners of other small animals, including cats, have the same duty as dog owners, and we can help you hold the owner accountable for your injuries.
