At McMahon, Kublick & Smith, PC, our Syracuse dog bite attorneys are experienced in helping victims and their families who have been seriously hurt or injury as a result of a dog attack. We understand New York and local laws governing dog bite attacks and resulting injuries, and know how to apply them successfully your specific case in order to get the best results for you and your family.
When a dog bites or other domestic animal attacks, the owner is responsible for the injury if it can be shown that the owner knew of the animal’s prior vicious propensities. A previous bite serves as notice to the owner. Under the one free bite rule, an owner is not liable for the first vicious incident, but is for every incident thereafter. At McMahon, Kublick & Smith, PC, we employ private investigators to find these prior occurrences and establish liability.
Those who harbor animals that are considered wild are held to a higher standard. Owners of wild animals are strictly responsible for the harm caused by the animal if the animal escapes, regardless of whether the animal has shown prior vicious propensities. Owners of wild animals that bite victims on their property may also be held responsible for those attacks, but liability does not automatically attach, and liability depends on the particular circumstances.
