Holding Negligent Animal Owners Accountable in Massachusetts
Dogs bring tremendous happiness to their owners and families. Some dogs are dangerous, though, and the owners of dangerous dogs have a responsibility to properly restrain them and also to adequately warn any who may come onto the property where a threatening pet lives. If you have been severely injured by a dog you can pursue financial compensation from the owner if the dog was unprovoked in its attack.
A Springfield personal injury attorney from our law firm should be consulted immediately following medical treatment. We offer a free case evaluation to review the details of your potential case. Dog bites can cause serious injury and even death. The damages can be even more devastating to children. Dog owners have a responsibility to protect others from the potential harm their dog is capable of producing.
Dangers of Dog Bites
Dog bites can cause major complications, especially if occurring to a young child.
Complications from dog bites include:
- Permanent disfigurement
- Debilitating disease
- Emotional trauma
They can also cause further complications from falls or being knocked to the ground while attempting to escape the dog or protect oneself. So if you are dealing with any of these complications, you may have a claim. Successful dog bite claims must prove that the victim did nothing to provoke the dog and that there was no trespassing on private property.
