  • Injuries Common in Dog Bite Incidents

    Dog bites often result in serious injuries that can require extensive medical attention, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, and lengthy recovery. Victims may sustain injuries including:

    • Head trauma
    • Deep wounds, punctures, or lacerations
    • Deep scarring
    • Disfigurement
    • Broken and/or fractured bones
    • Infections
    • Nerve Damage

    You may also suffer emotional distress, along with pain and anguish. Massachusetts has a “strict liability” law for dog bites. The owner or the keeper of a dog that attacks or bites another person is legally responsible for the victim’s injuries. The victim does not need to prove that the dog owner acted negligently or that the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s penchant for aggressive behavior.

    As the victim of a dog bite incident, you may be eligible for compensation as long as you didn’t trespass on the dog owner’s property or in any way mock, torment, or abuse the dog.

  • Compensation You May Be Eligible to Receive

    If you have been bitten by another person’s dog, you are entitled to compensation for all damages associated with your injuries. These damages may include lost wages, current and future medical expenses, costs of medications, physical therapy, counseling for psychological trauma, insurance costs, and any pain and suffering sustained. If our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can’t negotiate a settlement with the insurance provider, your personal injury case may head to civil court. This is when either a jury or judge will determine the amount of damages you may receive, including compensation for pain and suffering.

    While every injury case is unique, a dog bite settlement may include compensation for the following:

    • Medical bills from hospitalization, surgeries, prescriptions, physical therapy, etc.
    • Future medical costs if additional treatment is needed.
    • Lost income and reduced earning capacity. Pain and suffering.
    • Emotional distress.
    • Disfigurement from bite scars.
    • Lower quality of life from permanent disability.

    Occasionally, punitive damages can also be awarded by the judge or jury in a dog bite injury case. To learn more about your legal options, contact Morgan & Morgan to discuss your case with one of our specialists.
