Massachusetts Dog Bite Statute

When it comes to dog bites, dog owners and handlers are strictly liable. Holyoke dog bite attorneys do not need to prove negligence or any other degree of culpability. Additionally, the defenses available to dog owners are limited. Only two defenses prove to be effective. They are:

  • The victim was trespassing at the time of the dog attack.
  • The victim was instrumental in provoking the dog that bit them.

Once a dog owner has been shown to be liable, they must pay for various economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical bills;
  • Hospital bills;
  • Rehabilitation, prescriptions, and medical devices and equipment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

If gross negligence or willful/wanton behavior led to the dog bite or attack, the victim may also demand punitive damages in a lawsuit.

The dog bite lawyers at Cava Law Firm fight for maximum compensation at every step of their clients’ claims. They entertain only the settlement offers that truly meet their clients’ needs.
