Hudson Valley Dog Bite Attorney

If another individual's dog has injured you, you may be entitled to receive compensation to cover damages such as: medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other negative results of the incident. At Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C., our team of compassionate and experienced Hudson Valley personal injury lawyers is prepared to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. We know the New York State laws that pertain to dog bites and have more than 50 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases of this kind. We are tough litigators who will not back down no matter how difficult the case.

Dog Bite Laws in New York State

New York is considered a "mixed" state, which means that the one-bite rule is mixed with the strict liability law in regard to the state's dog bite statute. Dog owners are held strictly liable for only medical and veterinary costs. At the same time, the victim must prove that the dog already had a dangerous tendency to attack individuals and that the dog's owner had been aware of that behavior. Under the New York Agriculture & Markets Law § 121:10, the owner or keeper of a dangerous dog is held strictly liable for the medical expenses that are a result of the attack. In some cases, the dog owner of a dangerous dog may be required to pay a fine for negligence.

If you, a child, or another loved one has been the victim of a dog attack, you should take legal action to secure the compensation you deserve. Our Hudson Valley dog bite attorneys can help you pursue the maximum compensation possible through a thorough investigation and dedicated representation.

Although the New York laws consider negligence of the dog owner a ground for an injury claim or lawsuit, it is not enough to automatically receive damages for the attack. The defendant must have known, or had reasonable proof to have known, that the dog possessed a dangerous temperament. We can help you prove that true in your case.
