If you or your canine companion have been bitten by another dog, rest assured that we are able to handle the situation and provide the necessary assistance.
Attorney Teper is here to challenge the conventional norms and break barriers to ensure that victims receive the rightful compensation for the injury, distress and trauma caused by harm to themselves or their beloved pets. In accordance with the Massachusetts dog bite law, the owner or person responsible for a dog that inflicts injury or death upon another individual is held strictly liable for the resulting damages and losses suffered by the victim. This implies that the dog's owner(s) or those in control of the dog are legally bound to provide compensation for the injuries and losses incurred during the attack. However, the application of these laws is not always straightforward in a court of law.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that dog bites are a common occurrence in the United States, with approximately 4.5 million happening each year. Unfortunately, up to 20 percent of these bites can become infected, leading to more severe injuries and the need for additional medical treatment. The injuries that can result from a dog bite are diverse and can range from minor lacerations to severe amputations.
