Dog Bites

Massachusetts Dog Bite Attorney:

Dog attacks and bites have severe and long lasting effects.  Injuries that typically result from dog attacks are:

  • Crushed or broken bones
  • Lacerations and tissue loss
  • Permanent scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Abrasions and puncture wounds
  • Damages for dog attacks are also available for a situation in which a dog attacks livestock such as pigs or cattle

Massachusetts law assigns liability for any attack to the owner or keeper of the dog.  If the owner is a minor, liability is on the parent or guardian of the minor.  An exception to this rule applies if the victim of the attack was trespassing, teasing, tormenting or abusing the dog.  However, this trespass and abuse exception does not apply to children under the age of seven.

If you have been injured by a dog bite or dog attack, you are entitled to compensation for medical and other expenses arising from your injuries.  Dog bites often leave scars that are permanent and the dog’s owners are usually covered by their homeowners insurance policy for dog bite incidents.

At the Law Office of Susan T. Aguiar, we will provide a timely assessment of your case and pursue expeditious settlement so that you receive the compensate you deserve.

If you or a loved one has been attacked or bitten by a dog or other domestic animal, call Attorney Aguiar today.  We will provide you with a free consultation and assessment of you claim and will do everything in out power to protect your rights and bring your claim to a successful conclusion.
