Nearly 7,000 children and teens are injured due to dog bites every year in New York. Around 200 of those victims are hurt badly enough to require serious medical attention, including hospitalization.
Nationwide, attacks by vicious dogs are an even more significant problem. Dogs attack nearly 4.5 million people every year, according to the CDC. Unfortunately, children are the victims of over 50% of these attacks. Severe dog bite injuries can cause significant damage that requires long-term medical care. Some bites can be bad enough to cause scarring and disfigurement that will require plastic surgery to correct.
If you have been bitten by a dog or attacked by any other type of animal, you are entitled to fair compensation for the injuries you sustained. Our injury attorneys at Tona Law are here to help you take on even the largest insurance companies. Compassion and integrity are central to our mission, and we will leave no stone unturned.
You have a Right to Compensation
In New York state, dog owners may be held responsible if their dog injures a person. Dog owners may be on the hook for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, damage to property, and pain and suffering. As stated earlier, dog bites can be severe, so medical expenses alone may be hefty. Specific, fact-based evidence determines how much a dog owner may be entitled to pay.
