Dog Bite Injuries
Were you or someone you love attacked by a dog in New York? Watch this video to find out what’s important to know about dog bite injuries and whether you can recover compensation.
When someone is bitten by a dog in the state of New York, there are all different levels and varying types of injuries that can develop. Sometimes you have a simple dog bite where the teeth may barely puncture the skin; there’s no need for stitches. It’s well understood that the dog doesn’t have rabies; you have a background of its vet shots, and you understand its history, and it’s simple. However, sometimes it’s much worse.
Often, it depends on the bite itself, the type of dog, how vicious it attacked the person, and whether there was pulling, pushing or falling that accompanies the bite as well that could lead to other injuries. I think it’s important to understand that, even if you had torn your knee or broke a bone that was unrelated to the bite itself, but occurred as a result of the attack or the way you tried to ward off the bite, this could all relate back to the dog bite itself, and you have the right to compensation for all of those injuries.
