Dog Bites

Dog Bites

For centuries, dogs have made wonderful pets and provided humankind with companionship, service for the visually impaired, and utility for everyone from ranchers to canine police units. But on occasion, often for unknown reasons, dogs attack and people get hurt. One of our clients, a 46-year-old man, was bitten by his neighbor’s dog while putting waste into the recycling bin near his house. This caused severe nerve damage to his right leg. Sullivan and Sullivan LLP fought for this client’s chance at fair compensation and won $80,000 on behalf of our client. Are you or someone you know in a similar situation?

Frequently these attacks are unprovoked and no fault of the dog owner. If you or someone you know has been bitten or attacked by a dog, Sullivan and Sullivan LLP can help. We will provide the quality legal counsel you need to win your case.

Severe lacerations, nerve damage, scars, fear, and anxiety — the effects of a dog bite injury are severe and can cause long-term physical and emotional harm. If you or your family member has sustained an injury as a result of a dog bite attack, New York law gives you the right to seek financial compensation for your suffering.

In most cases, the victim’s homeowners insurance will cover the damages associated with a dog bite or other injury caused by a dog, including:

– Medical care
– Lost wages
– Rabies immunizations
– Scarring
– Out-of-pocket expenses
– Pain and suffering associated with the injury
