Albany Dog Bite Lawyer
More than 40 percent of Americans own at least one dog. It’s easy to see why ― dogs can be loyal companions who provide love, entertainment and can even save lives. But even the most trustworthy dogs have the potential to be aggressive. If you or a loved one is bitten by a dog, it’s possible to obtain compensation for the injuries that you have suffered.
Dog bites can result in devastating injuries, both physical and emotional. The cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation, missed wages and other losses can create tremendous burdens for victims and family members.
New Yorkers have the right to obtain compensation for dog bite injuries. Dog owners are responsible for ensuring that their pets do not bite or attack. When they fail to do so and someone is bitten, the responsible party can be held liable for any injuries.
If you have been bitten by a dog, the knowledgeable Albany dog bite attorneys at Belluck & Fox can help. For more than 25 years, we have defended the rights of injured victims throughout New York and recovered more than $1 billion in compensation for our clients.
