Legal Guidance For Dog Bite Claims
Massachusetts law is very clear on filing an injury claim related to an animal bite or attack. To file a claim, you only need to be able to prove that you were attacked by an animal and suffered an injury and/or the animal destroyed your property. You do not have to prove that the owner was careless or negligent in handling the animal. Damaged property includes other animals such as other dogs and livestock. If you provoked the animal or were committing a crime at the time of the attack, you will not be able to file a claim.
At Law Office of Robert E. Frawley, I know how traumatizing a dog attack can be, and I know how devastating the consequences can be. I proudly help people in the Lawrence community with their personal injury claims, including dog bites.
Knowing The Consequences Of Your Attack
Bites from dogs and other animals are often very serious injuries. When small children are attacked, it is very common for dogs to bite them on the face, causing severe physical and psychological damage. Dogs will often knock people over while they are walking or riding their bikes, leading injuries sustained in the fall. Injuries sometimes have lifelong effects and may include:
- Facial scars
- Broken bones
- Psychological trauma
- Soft tissue injuries
- Wrongful death
