Dog bites

In many instances dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by dog bites and attacks, whether or not the owner was negligent.  The Law Office of John T. Zogby  has represented many clients injured by dogs.  Recently the firm achieved a significant settlement for a young boy bit in the leg by a neighbor’s dog.  In another recent case the firm secured a settlement for a client who fractured her wrist when she was knocked down by a dog while taking a walk.

Frequently asked questions by those injured by dogs include:

  • What if the dog was on a leash?
  • In what instances may I be eligible for multiple damages?
  • Does the owner’s homeowner’s insurance cover dog bites?
  • What does the defense of “teasing or tormenting” mean?
  • What is my case worth?
