Dog bites are a common occurrence in Western New York. Some attacks lead to terrible, permanent scars. Other people are injured when a big dog jumps up and knocks them over or engages in other unexpected behavior.
Most homeowner’s insurance policies provide coverage to compensate people bitten by a dog. New York law requires proof that the owner knew that the dog may bite or engage in other dangerous behavior. Getting this proof is an important part of any dog bite lawsuit.
