Dog & Animal Bite Injuries

Middlesex County Dog Bite Attorney

Although dogs are often referred to as "man's best friend" every year thousands of people are seriously injured and disfigured as a result of vicious dog attacks.  Although most people associate dog attacks with breeds such as Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Pit Bull Terriers, Bulldogs, Cocker Spaniels, Chow Chows and Rotweillers, the truth is that any breed is capable of attacking a person at any giving time.    The laws of Massachusetts place stringent civil liability standards on the owners and keepers of dogs. So long as the victim did not taunt, torment or abuse the dog or commit a trespass or other tort to precipitate the attack, then the owner or keeper of the perpetrating dog is strictly liable to the victim for the resulting injuries.  Massachusetts' law even goes so far as to create a rebuttable presumption that a victim under the age of seven did not engage in any such activity prior to the attack. In some limited situations, the victim may even be entitled to triple damages as a result of a dog attack.

If you are a victim of a dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation for any or all of the following damages:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Lost Wages / Loss of Income
  • Lost Earning Capacity
  • Scarring and Disfigurement
  • Loss of Function and Strength
  • Permanent Injury
  • Medical Bills
  • Hospital Bills
  • Prescription Costs
