Dog Bite Lawyer in Brooklyn

Dog Bite Lawyer in Brooklyn

You probably already know that dog bite cases are complex. But nothing will prepare you for the complexity of dog bite laws in Brooklyn. Some jurisdictions follow strict liability law when adjudicating dog bite cases. Others follow the negligence law. But in Brooklyn, the mixed liability legal principle comes into play. Here, the dog owner can be held responsible for the dog bite if they knew the dog in question was dangerous or if they were negligent in handling the dog. The good thing about this law is that it opens up many potential avenues for pursuing compensation if you're a dog bite victim. So fill out our free case evaluation form to get started. Our dog bite lawyer in Brooklyn might be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve after such a horrific incident.

  • Why Should I Hire a Dog Bite Lawyer in Brooklyn?

    For starters, as mentioned earlier, dog bite laws in Brooklyn are complex. Hiring a dog bite lawyer is a huge step toward protecting your rights as the victim and seeking fair compensation for your injuries. An experienced lawyer understands the complex legal process and often has the resources to build a strong case on your behalf, gather crucial evidence, identify the liable parties, and file a claim with their insurance providers. If liability is disputed or if the insurance company simply won't cooperate, the attorney may explore other options, including the possibility of filing a lawsuit on your behalf.

  • How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Dog Bite Lawyer in Brooklyn?

    Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which is just a fancy way of saying that you don't have to pay any upfront fees or retainer to secure our services. Instead, we will only receive a small percentage of the compensation you win. If you don't win, we won't recover anything. Learn more about the benefits of the contingency payment system here

  • Can a Dog Bite Lawyer Help if the Dog Owner Claims They Are Not Responsible for the Attack?

    Yes, such defenses are not uncommon in these types of cases. But with a skilled dog bite lawyer in your corner and powerful legal resources at their disposal, they can build a strong case supporting your claim. 

  • How Long Do I Have To File a Dog Bite Claim in Brooklyn?

    Dog bite cases in Brooklyn fall under the three-year statute of limitations. The clock begins to count from the date of the incident, which is why you should act promptly and seek legal advice. Missing the deadline could prevent you from pursuing compensation in court.
