New Cassel Dog Bite Lawyer
When a dog attacks and bites the physical pain of the dog bite itself, as terrible as it may be, can be made even worse, especially for small children, by the intensity of the emotional trauma. That said, the injuries resulting from a dog bite often require extensive medical treatment, and some even lead to surgery and hospitalization.
As a victim of an attacking dog, you do not deserve to bear the cost of medical treatment and other damages. This responsibility should fall squarely on the dog’s owner or caretaker.

We Will Establish Liability for Your New Cassel Dog Bite
New York state laws require that dog owners take reasonable steps to prevent their pets from causing injuries. If the dog owner was aware of the animal’s propensity for aggressive behavior, they may be automatically liable for any injuries the dog caused in its attack.
Your legal team will set out to prove that:
- The dog owner’s negligence led to your injury, perhaps by violating a leash law or leaving a door or gate open, allowing the dog to escape and attack; or
- The owner knew of the dog’s tendency to bite or attack, and that a dog’s aggressive behavior in the past should have put the owner on notice that the animal was a danger.
