Dog Bites

Dog Bite Injury Lawyer in Massachusetts

1 in every 60 people in the United States suffers a dog bite annually. Further, 1 in 4 households in Massachusetts owns a dog. Massachusetts dog bite laws are found in M.G.L c. 140, s. 155. Typically, the damages from these lawsuits are paid by homeowners’ insurance and usually the owner of a dog is strictly liable for injuries resulting from a dog attack. Massachusetts does not require an owner to show that a dog has a character for violence, unlike some other states.

Pet ownership can be a tremendously rewarding and relaxing experience, especially for owners who put in the time and effort necessary to properly train their dogs, resulting in a loving, loyal companion and a true friend.

Nevertheless, many owners fail to put in this effort. Dogs routinely attack innocent people, often resulting in significant injuries.

When you have been bitten by a dog that is not your own, you have the right to expect that the dog’s owner will pay for the sustained injuries. At Rightful Legal, our expert personal injury lawyers are equipped to assist you following a dog bite.
