Animal Bite Litigation
At Marcotte Law Firm, we have handled numerous dog bite injury cases throughout Massachusetts. We understand the importance of dog bite litigation, aiming to protect adults and the most vulnerable of victims ― children.
Dog bite injuries range in severity, from skin punctures and bruising, to facial wounds and broken cartilage and bones. A great number of bites become infected, adding to the potential harm an injury can cause. Dog’s mouths are full of harmful bacteria, making an otherwise normal injury one that can be life-threatening.
It is important to note that any dog is capable of causing serious harm through a bite. However, some breeds are known for their aggressive behavior. The following are among some of the most dangerous dog breeds in terms of biting humans:
- Pit bulls
- German shepherds
- Alaskan malamutes
- Doberman pinschers
If you have been bitten by any of these breeds, or another dog, it is important to first seek medical attention and then get in touch with a personal injury attorney. In Massachusetts, the dog owner is automatically liable for the injuries caused by their dog’s bite. We can help you gain compensation for your injuries, as well as hold the dog owner responsible ― which may help to prevent a dog attack in the future.
