If you’re one of the roughly 4.5 million Americans who are bitten by dogs each year, you already know the physical and emotional strain it can cause. Not only are dog bites painful and frightening, but they also can be life-threatening and have lingering psychological consequences.
But people like you who are bitten by dogs that are not properly cared for or restrained have the right to compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers, we know the law, and our Boston dog bite lawyers will fight hard to hold the dog owner accountable.
Massachusetts Dog Bite Laws
In Massachusetts, dog bite victims rarely have to prove that dog owners were negligent. Owners and keepers of animals are held strictly liable—or legally responsible—for the conduct of the animals in their control.
Although there are certain exceptions to this rule, under Massachusetts law, if any dog damages the body or property of another person, the owner or keeper of the dog will be held liable for the damages.
