Retain Vigorous Representation for Your Injury
You can greatly help your case by collecting the contact information of the dog owner if you do not know them already. You should also keep records of any treatment you receive to share with your attorney. Photographs of the injury site are also excellent evidence to assist in convincing the insurance company of your injuries.
A suit could recover compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Scarring and any cosmetic treatment
- Mental suffering
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Lost wages from work
- Loss of quality of life
- Temporary or permanent disability
Our Boston dog bite attorney can pursue the at-fault party and their renters’ or homeowners’ insurance policy if applicable to obtain what you deserve after suffering a vicious dog bite.
We Fully Understand Premises Liability Law in MA
Victims of dog bites require much less proof of fault for a successful case than other types of injury cases. As the victim, you need only to show that the dog was the cause of your injuries and that you had not been tormenting or teasing the animal or trespassing. Importantly, victims under seven years of age are presumed to not have teased or abused the dog, making the dog owner strictly liable for your the child’s injuries.
