Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Dog Owners

Understanding How Massachusetts Law Applies to Dog Bite Cases
In Massachusetts, dog owners are generally held strictly liable for dog bite injuries. Whether or not a dog belongs to a dangerous breed, it has the potential to seriously injure people and must be kept under the owner's control and supervision at all times.
Our firm handles many dog bite cases and has a high success rate at obtaining compensation for our clients. We are fully prepared to take cases to trial if necessary.
Whether you were bit by a dog while you were on the owner's property, on the sidewalk, in a public park or anywhere else, we can help you identify potential insurance coverage and pursue the money damages you deserve for your injuries.
Seeking Compensation for Serious Harm to You or Your Child
Injuries from dog bites and other animal attacks often have long-term or permanent consequences, including maiming, scarring and disfiguration. The physical and psychological consequences can be particularly traumatic for children who are bitten by dogs.
