Dog Bites and Animal Attack
The experienced attorneys at Mandler & Sieger, LLP have successfully handled many cases in which a dog or other domestic animal causes serious injury after biting, scratching or jumping up and knocking a victim down. Contrary to popular belief, New York State does not necessarily follow the “one free bite rule” in which an owner may not be held responsible for a dog’s first offense if the dog had not shown dangerous behavior in the past.
The attorneys and Mandler & Sieger, LLP understand the pain and suffering that can result from a dog bite or attack. We will investigate the accident and interview witnesses to see if the animal’s owner knew or should have been aware of what is commonly referred to as the animal’s “vicious propensities” such as growling, baring teeth or lunging and will help you recover the maximum compensation for your injuries that the law allows.
