Dog Attacks/Dog Bites
Been Attacked by a Dog? You Are Entitled to Compensation.
If you are victim of a dog attack, you are entitled to recover for your injuries, scarring, medical bills, pain and suffering and other related expenses. Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 140, Section 155 provides Massachusetts residents with one of the strongest laws in the country for the victims of dog bites.
A dog owner or its keeper is strictly liable for dog bites. This means that you can recover against the owner of a dog for any attack or bite, even the dog’s first bite!
It is important to obtain as much information about the dog that bit you as soon as possible. Following a dog bite you should immediately seek medical attention. You should also identify the owner or keeper of the dog. This will allow you to find out if the dog has had all of its veterinary shots as required by law. It will also help you determine the proper party to place on notice of your injury claim. If you have been bitten or attacked by a dog contact Goldman Law Offices, P.C. as soon as possible to protect your legal interests.
