Massachusetts Dog Bite Statute

The Massachusetts dog bite statute clearly makes dog owners and dog handlers strictly liable for damages resulting from dog attacks. In other words, there are few defenses available to dog owners and handlers when their pets attack. They are:

  • The victim was trespassing.
  • The victim provoked or teased the dog.

If you have been bitten by a dog, a dog bite lawyer in Westfield can pursue valuable damages and recover more than you would likely receive from the insurance company involved. Damages in dog bite cases include:

  • Medical and hospital bills;
  • Lost income;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

The dog bite attorneys at Cava Law Firm work diligently to hold dog owners liable for the damage their pets inflict on others.
