Benefits of Working with Our Team
A dog bite could have lasting and detrimental harm, particularly if the injured party is a young child. While you work on physical and emotional recovery, you can rely on our team to take the following actions on your behalf:
- Identify the at-fault dog and its owner
- Provide frequent updates on your case

We assist injured clients in Spanish, Greek, Bengali, Tamil, and Kannada and will meet you on Long Island or elsewhere in the New York metropolitan area.
Comply with the Statute of Limitations
Understanding and complying with the statute of limitations might be confusing because several factors potentially create a change in the filing deadline. Depending on the outcome of your case:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is governed by New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 (However, if a government agency, municipality or public authority is involved, the statute of limitations is significantly shorter and the time to serve a Notice of Claim is even shorter. One of many possible examples of this could be if the dog was being kept by someone in a public housing setting and the management actually knew, or had they exercised an appropriate level of care, should have known that a dangerous dog was there, posing a threat, without taking action to prevent incidents like the ultimate attack. Our Nassau County dog bite attorney will carefully review the circumstances of your dog bite/dog attack to make certain we protect your rights with respect to statutes of limitations, and the timely service of notices.)
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is governed by Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1
If the dog bite victim in your case was your minor child, the statute of limitations might vary. Our team will explain the principle of tolling for minors and how it impacts your child’s right to financial recovery.
