Proving Who Is at Fault and Liable for Your Dog Bite
Powered by the evidence we gather, our legal team will set out to meet the criteria required by law to prove negligence for your dog bite attack and liability for your damages.
These requirements include establishing the following elements in your case:
Duty of Care: Somebody, usually the dog owner in a dog bite case, owed you the duty of taking reasonable care to keep you from being attacked by the dog.
Breach of Duty: This person, through either action or inaction, failed to protect you from the dog attack.
Causation and Fault: Because this person failed to take the reasonable steps to protect you from this dog attack, the dog bit you, and you sustained injuries.
Damages and Liability: Finally, we will depict the dog bite injuries you sustained, the emotional suffering you have endured, and the financial damages you have incurred.
With this foundation, your case will stand strong throughout negotiations with insurance companies and potential litigation against opposing legal counsel. Call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. today so we can start building your dog bite case: 516-932-0400.

Talking to All the People Involved—on Your Behalf—to Get You Justice
After we have assembled a complete list of damages and assigned a monetary value to each item on the list, we will work to negotiate a settlement with the liable party’s insurance company. If they do not make an appropriate offer of settlement, or they deny your claim completely, depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, we will file a lawsuit in civil court on your behalf. From there, we will litigate your case to obtain a verdict seeking the maximum possible money recovery for you along with the justice you are entitled to.
Staying on Top of Deadlines, Like New York’s Statutes of Limitations
The state of New York limits the time you have from the time of your dog bite in which to pursue legal action in court. We will manage and comply with this and other critical deadlines. The sooner you hire us, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible on your behalf.
