Boston Lawyer: Dog Bite Injury Claims
A dog bite or other animal attack can have a devastating effect on the victim's life. Permanent scarring and disfigurement may result in a lifelong struggle with depression. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is common. The victim is reminded of the trauma every time he or she passes an animal or looks in a mirror and sees the scars from the mauling.
Who will compensate you for a dog bite or animal attack?
Massachusetts law assigns strict liability to owners and handlers of dogs. The cost of treatment for the physical and psychological injuries sustained in an animal attack and related damages for pain and suffering are typically covered under the dog owner's homeowner liability or business liability insurance policy. (For that reason, a dog bite claim may be considered a premises liability case.) If you would like to speak with one of our lawyers, please contact our Boston office to arrange a free consultation.
