Massachusetts Dog Bite Lawyer Settlement
The Earley Law Group Injury Lawyers recently was able to secure a confidential settlement for our client who was bitten by a dog and suffered personal injuries. Our client, a teacher, was bit on the leg. The bite was to her thigh which resulted in numbness and scarring. Through negotiation, we were able to convince the insurance company to pay our client a fair and full settlement for the personal injuries she experienced from the dog bite.
Massachusetts dog bite law is very clear. A dog owner is strictly (automatically) liable to anyone that is bitten by his dog, as long as the victim was not teasing, tormenting, or abusing the dog. Frequently minors are attacked by dogs, and many times they are bitten on the face. The three defenses listed above do not apply to children younger than seven.
These bites typically can cause very serious personal injuries such as scarring, post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as other injuries.
Sometimes the dog owner does not have either homeowners or renters insurance. In that situation, the dog owner must be pursued personally in order to obtain compensation.
